Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 75 of 1880.—Petition of Riperata Kahutia and Others

No. 75 of 1880.—Petition of Riperata Kahutia and Others.

Petitioners state that they reside at Turanga; that they own a great deal of land, some under Crown grants, some by certificates of title, and some by memorials of ownership. They pray that they may be allowed to appoint trustees to manage their affairs, and also that a Bill entitled "The East Coast Native Lands Settlement Act, 1880," may be passed.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That this petition refers to matters of policy now under the consideration of Parliament, and the Committee therefore has no recommendation to make.

6th July, 1880.
