No. 83.—Petition of Tuta Nihoniho and Others (No. 1).
Petitioners state that when the Paraeroa Block was decided in their favour Major Ropata Wahawaha expressed satisfaction at the decision given, and gave his word that he would not apply for a rehearing, but that, as he has now applied for a rehearing, and as the rehearing has been granted, petitioners pray that the applications may be made by order of Parliament to pay expenses which they are likely to be put to during the rehearing.
I am directed to report as follows: That, as there is no evidence adduced in suport of this petition, the Committee has no recommendation to make.
