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.
No. 83.—Pukapuka-inoi a Tuta Nihoniho me etahi atu (Nama 1).
E ki ana nga kai-pitihana i whakaae a Meiha Ropata ki te whakataunga a te Kooti i te Paraeroa Poraka, a i mea ano hoki ia e kore ia e tono kia whakawakia tuaruatia. Heoi i te mea kua tono ia kia whakawakia tuaruatia, a kua whakaaetia taua whakawa tuarua. E inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakataua e te Paramete kia utua e nga kaitono nga utu katoa e tau ana ki runga i nga kai-pitihana ina whakawakia taua keehi.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: No te mea kahore he korero hei tautoko i nga korero o tenei pitihana, kahora he kupu a te Komiti.
