Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Reha Aperahama

Report on Petition of Reha Aperahama.

This petition has reference to a land dispute at Hauraki, which, as is alleged by the petitioner, almost resulted in an appeal to arms. It is stated in the petition that the persons who stirred up the strife are paid Assessors of the Government, and the petitioner thinks it wrong to continue to pay public money to these two Assessors.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, in the opinion of this Committee, the Government ought to cause inquiry to be made into the allegations of the petitioner, and if it be found that the Assessors referred to in the petition have really improperly stirred up strife, that public money should cease to be paid to them.

John Bryce,
