No. 771 (1907).—Petition of A. Hulbert and 84 Others.
Petitioners pray that the Government pass this session such legislation as will admit of the purchase of Native townships for the purpose of their conversion into Crown lands with the option of the freehold.
I am directed to report that the Committee has no recommendation to make on this petition, as a matter of policy is involved.
No. 771 (1907).—Pitihana a A. Hulbert me etahi atu e waru tekau ma wha.
E inoi ana kia paahitia e te Kawanatanga i tenei tunga ano o te Paremete he rarangi ture e taea ai te hoko mai i nga taonehipi Maori i runga i te whakaaro kia hurihia aua wahi hei Whenua Karauna me te hoatu he mana e whiwhi ai (ratou) i te whirihoura.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ripoata, kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti mo runga i tenei pitihana, no te mea e pa ana ki nga tikanga whakahaere (a te Kawanatanga).
