Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 286 of 1880.—Petition of Raihi Toroaiti and 10 Others

No. 286 of 1880.—Petition of Raihi Toroaiti and 10 Others.

Petitioners say that they have learned that a Bill is before Parliament which would prevent owners from selling their lands whether held by Crown grant or under Native title, and that sales can only be made through Government, with large deductions from the proceeds. The petitioners prefer previous Land Acts.

I am directed to report as follows:—

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

11th August, 1880.
