Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

[Report on Petition of Hori Wirihana and 89 Others]

Report on Petition of Hori Wirihana and 89 Others.

Petitioners allege that their land (reserves) at Tauranga was sold without their consent, which was specially withheld on account of hurial-places being there.

I am directed to report as follows:—

The Committee are of opinion that the manner in which these reserves have been acquired in some cases by Government officials should receive the attention of the Government.

John Bryce,
Chairman.

22nd October, 1877.

[Translation.]
Ko te kupu a te Komiti mo runga i te Pukapuka-inoi a Hori Wirihana me ona hoa e 89.

E ki ana nga kai-inoi i hokona to ratou whenua (porowhita) i Tauranga i te mea kahore ratou i whakaae; te take i kore ai e puta ta ratou kupu whakaae he urupa kei reira.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—

E whakaaro ana te Komiti ma te Kawanatanga e titiro te tikanga o te hokonga o enei porowhita—ko etahi kua hokona e nga apiha o te Kawanatanga.

John Bryce,
Tumuaki.
