No. 8, Sess. I.—Petition of Anaru te Kakahi te Urungatu and 42 Others.
Petitioners pray that a piece of land at Waiapu called Te Rahui, which was given for a site for a Magistrate's residence, and never used for that purpose, may be returned to them.
I am directed to report that the Committee are not prepared to interfere in this matter, which should, in their opinion, be mutually arranged between the Government and the Natives.
No. 8, Sess. I.—Pitihana a Anaru te Kakahi te Urungatu me etahi atu e wha tekau ma rua.
E inoi ana nga kai-pitihana me whakahoki ki a raton tetahi whenua kei Waiapu, tona ingoa ko Te Rahui, i hoatu i mua hei tuunga mo te Whare o te Kai-whakawa, i te mea kihai nga tikanga i hoatu ai i mahia ki runga ki taua whenua.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kaore te Komiti e pokanoa ki tenei mea, notemea ki ta ratou whakaaro me tiro tenei putake ma te Kawanatanga ratou ko nga Maori e ata whakariterite pai.
