Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1882.

No. 354 of 1882.—Petition of Robert Graham (No. 4)

No. 354 of 1882.—Petition of Robert Graham (No. 4).

Petitioner states that in July, 1881, a Land Court was held at Ohinemutu, when a certificate of title was ordered to Niramoana Puri for Utanga No. 9, and to Anatenui te Rapi for Utanga No. 2a; that petitioner held leases from the owners, bearing date 6th August and 31st October, 1881 respectively; that he applied to the Chief Judge to enter a memorandum upon the Court roll, but this was refused upon the ground that the Thermal-Springs Act had come into operation; that the petitioner has erected buildings to the value of £5,000, yet has no security.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That, without pronouncing upon the validity of the lease referred to, or the equity of the case, the Committee recommends this petition to the consideration of the Government.

15th August, 1882.
