No. 6 of 1880.—Petition of Muriwhenua and 11 Others.

Petitioners complain that their lands at Kaniwhaniwha have been leased by persons who have no right to it, and pray for redress.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That it appears that Government cannot advantageously interfere in the matter, any grievance there may be being a question for the ordinary Courts. The Committee has no recommendation to make further than this: that Government should carefully watch the case, and as far as possible see that justice be done to each individual for whom the land is held in trust, in the distribution of the funds.

28th July, 1880.
