Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 266 of 1880.—Petition of Ani Matenga Te Whakaumata and 70 Others

No. 266 of 1880.—Petition of Ani Matenga Te Whakaumata and 70 Others.

Petitioners pray for a return of 200 acres at Te Kauri near Katikati.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the confiscated land referred to was returned to the Natives, who afterwards sold it to the Government, the Natives concerned well knowing of the transaction. It forms part of the Katikati Special Settlement. A block of land has been specially set apart, that the original owners may not be landless. The petitioners have only to apply to a Commission now sitting, of which they are well aware, and get all that justice requires. The Committee has therefore no recommendation to make.
