Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Wiremu Karaka

Report on Petition of Wiremu Karaka.

Petitioner prays for compensation for losses suffered by him during the war, stating that his claims were investigated by the Compensation Court, which sat on the 28th January, 1867.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the question of the granting of compensation for losses suffered by individuals, whether Europeans or of the Native race, during the war, has been so often reported on by Select Committees page 45and considered by the House that the Committee do not deem it necessary to enter into the subject at any length. The Committee do, however, hold an opinion that many of these claims are founded on justice.
