Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Interim Report

Interim Report.

I have the honor to report that the following resolution was passed by the Native Affairs Committee on the 7th August, 1877:—

That the Government be requested to direct that there be furnished, for the use of this Committee, without unnecessary delay, a map of the North Island, upon as large a scale as conveniently may be, setting forth in different colours—

1. The lands owned by Europeans, distinguishing, as far as possible, between lands purchased by private individuals from the Natives, and land purchased by the Crown.
2. The confiscated lands unsold.
3. Lands reserved for Maori purposes.
4. Lands held by Natives under certificates of title, memorial of ownership, and Crown grant.
5. Lands in the hands of the Maoris, or over which the Native title has not been extinguished.
