Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1877.

[Report on Petition of Paraone Hinaki and Others]

Report on Petition of Paraone Hinaki and Others.

Petitioners pray that no legislation on the subject of Native lands may take place during the present session, so that both races may join in framing a proper law next year.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, as the proposed legislation on the subject of Native lands has been withdrawn from the consideration of the House for the present session, the Committee do not deem it necessary to report a specific opinion on the subject matter of this petition, but recommend its contents to the consideration of the House when the proposed legislation with regard to the management of Native lands is brought before it.

John Bryce,
Chairman.

23rd October, 1877.

[Translation.]
Ko te kupu a te Komiti mo runga i te Pukapuka-inoi a Paraone Hinaki ma.

E tono ana nga kai-inoi kia kaua e hanga he Ture mo nga whenua Maori i tenei tau kia ahei ai nga iwi e rua ki te hanga tahi i tetahi Ture pai a te tau e haere ake nei.

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

Notemea kua unuhia ki waho o te Whare inaianei nga Ture i kiia ra kia mahia mo nga whenua Maori kahore te Komiti i whakaaro kia whai kupu tuturu ratou mo runga i tenei pukapuka-inoi, engari e mea ana ratou ki te Whare kia whakaarohia nga kupu o tenei pukapuka-inoi a te wa e korerotia ai nga tikanga mo nga whenua Maori i te aroaro o te Whare.

John Bryce,
Tumuaki.
