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

No. 153:—Petition of Te Kere Ngataierua and 2 Others

No. 153:—Petition of Te Kere Ngataierua and 2 Others.

Petitioners, who are members of the Ngatitu Tribe, state that a block of land called Opatu was sold to the Government by certain Natives who had no claim to the block. They pray that a rehearing may take place, so that they may be able to assert their lights to the land, which they say is theirs.

I am directed to report as follows: That there cannot be a rehearing, as the block was dealt with in January, 1886, and no appeal was made. Those who dissented from the sale of Opatu have had then land cut out, and thus their interests are preserved. The Committee has no recommendation to make.

8th June, 1887.
