Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 8 of of 1880.—Petition of Waana Ngahana

No. 8 of of 1880.—Petition of Waana Ngahana.

Petitioner states that land named Horitini, in the Waikato District, had been confiscated; that she and her brother have claims upon the land; and that they had not been in arms against the Queen. She prays that an officer of the Government may he sent to inquire into her case.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That it appears that the petitioner did not appear before the Compensation Court to establish a claim within the confiscated blocks. Further, that having written to the Government early in 1879, asking for consideration, the Native officer of the district was requested to report, who did so, to the effect that he had made inquiries into the matter, and considered the claim frivolous. The Committee cannot recommend that the prayer of the petition be granted.

28th July, 1880.
