Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Hare Akuhata and Others

Report on Petition of Hare Akuhata and Others.

Petitioners complain that certain persons have been admitted by the Native Land Court, which sat at Ohaeawai, Bay of Islands, who had no title to such lands, and pray that the matter may be redressed.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the prayer of the petition is virtually in the nature of an appeal from a decision of the Native Land Court. The Committee do not feel able to review such decisions in a satisfactory manner, but beg to refer to a general report brought up on the 23rd August, 1876, by the Native Affairs Committee of last session.

John Bryce,

30th August, 1877.
