Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 376 of Session II., 1879.—Petition of Susannah Sorensen

No. 376 of Session II., 1879.—Petition of Susannah Sorensen.

Petitioner states that, in 1877, she and her sister petitioned the House in reference to a claim to a portion of the Hopuhopu Block, in the Waikato District. That the petition was referred to the Government; that, after inquiry, the Under-Secretary for Native Affairs wrote to her, stating that any question of claim which her parents may have had, had been settled "long before the Waikato war;" that, notwithstanding this statement by the Under-Secretary, the petitioner still maintains that she is entitled to lands through her mother; and she prays for relief for her brother, her sister, and herself.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the Committee has no recommendation to make.

25th June, 1880.
