Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1880.

No. 309 of 1880.—Petition of Hawira Maki

No. 309 of 1880.—Petition of Hawira Maki.

Petitioner says that the railway runs through his cultivated land at Rangiriri. He prays that his land may be fenced, in accordance with promise.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the question of fencing lands through which railways run is one demanding the earnest attention of Government, especially where cultivations are interfered with. It would seem that the petitioner has sustained loss by having his land thrown open to trespass of cattle, and his case should receive special inquiry.

20th August, 1880.
