Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Members of the Muaupoko Tribe

Report on Petition of Members of the Muaupoko Tribe.

Petitioners pray that Road Board and County laws should have no effect over land the Native title to which has not been extinguished, and object generally to laws affecting Native lands.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the Committee do not think it necessary or desirable to recommend any alteration in the law in the direction of exempting Native lands from local rates, and do not think it necessary to offer any opinion upon the more general objection of the petitioners to all laws affecting Native lands.

John Bryce,
Chairman.

16th November, 1877.
