No. 205.—Petition of Ramari Herewini.
Petitioner alleges that land called Whakarewa, at Motueka, Nelson, was given to the Church of England for school purposes on the understanding that it should be returned when not used. The school having ceased to exist, petitioner prays that the land be returned to the Maoris.
I am directed to report that the Committee recommend that legislation be passed to restore the land, as prayed, to the Natives.
