Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1885.

No. 301, Sess. II, 1884.—Petition of Michael Mullooly

No. 301, Sess. II, 1884.—Petition of Michael Mullooly.

Petitioner states that in 1881 he legally purchased from the Native owners a block of land named Tuawhatu No. 1a, and paid cash for it; that a Native, not the original owner, applied to the Native Land Court to make the land inalienable for purchase, and succeeded in so doing. Petitioner prays for redress, as at present he is without either the land or the money he paid for the same.

I am directed to report as follows: That the removal of restrictions is a matter entirely at the option of the Governor, and the Committee does not deem it necessary to interfere with advice in the present case.

15th July, 1885.
