Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

Report on Petition of Hoani Enoka (No. 2)

Report on Petition of Hoani Enoka (No. 2).

Petitioner states that certain reserves at Wairau, Middle Island, were promised to his tribe (Rangitane), but that the rents are paid to others, whose title ought not to be recognized.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That this petition is similar in effect to one presented from the same petitioner last session and reported on as follows:—"That the allegation of the petitioner that the reserves referred to in the petition were made for the exclusive benefit of the Rangitane tribe, is not borne out by the evidence taken before the Committee. The Committee cannot, therefore, recommend the prayer of the petition to the favourable consideration of the House."

The Committee see no reason to alter the resolution arrived at last session.
