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

No. 20.—Petition of Paiura te Rangikatatu and 6 Others

No. 20.—Petition of Paiura te Rangikatatu and 6 Others.

Petitioners, who belong to Waitara, Taranaki, pray that they may be reinstated in the Turangi No. 4 Reserve, which was reserved to them by Sir Donald MeLean, and that George Stockman (Hori Taakimana), who now occupies it, may be removed and placed upon No. 5, his own land.

I am directed to report as follows: That this relates to the West Coast Commission awards. One of the petitioners in evidence states that he believes certain alleged wills are forgeries. A Land Court is now sitting to adjust claims; and the Committee would recommend that Government should send a copy of the petition, and of this report, to the Court for such consideration as may seem meet.
