Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Te Kiwa and Others

Report on Petition of Te Kiwa and Others.

The petitioners state that, although their names are on the deed of cession of the piece of land called Retaruke, they object to the sale which was arranged between Mr. Booth and Topine, because they have not seen any of the money. They then proceed to give the names of many localities which they state belong to them, and express their intention of withdrawing them from the deed of cession.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the Committee have no opinion to offer in respect of the subject-matter of this petition, but think that it ought to be referred to the Government for consideration.

John Bryce,

13th November, 1877.
