Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1887, No. 1

No, 12.—Petition of Hone Mohi Tawhai

No, 12.—Petition of Hone Mohi Tawhai.

Petitioner states that a piece of land at Waima, in Hokianga, called Te Rurunga, containing twenty acres, and other pieces of smaller area, were set aside as reserves for the Natives and halfcastes belonging to the Mahurehure and Ngatihau tribes, on the condition that the Government could resume possession of the land whenever they wished. He prays that the Government restrictions over those lands may now be withdrawn, as the said lands have been cultivated by the holders thereof.

I am directed to report as follows: That the Committee does not see any reason to interfere at present with the temporary reserves referred to in the petition.
