No. 116 of 1882.—Petition of H. K. Taiaroa, Esq., M.H.R.
Petitioner complains that an area of eight acres at Otago Heads, though included in the survey of his land, was not included in the Crown grant. He prays that a Crown grant be now issued to him for this land.
I am directed to report as follows:—
The land referred to is a piece of Native land lying between a little stream called Waipepeka and the sea, and is not included in any grant. There seems every reason to believe that the land was omitted from being Crown-granted by mistake. The Committee recommends that if, upon further inquiry by the Government, it be found that this is so, a Crown grant be issued without unnecessary delay.
