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

No. 69.—Petition of Timoti Karetai and 5 Others

No. 69.—Petition of Timoti Karetai and 5 Others.

Petitioners pray that the arrangements made by Mr. Wakefield and Mr. Symonds in the year 1844 may be adhered to—namely, that every tenth acre should be returned to the Natives out of the purchased lands.

I am directed to report as follows: That, as Judge Mackay is now inquiring into claims in the Middle Island, it is not necessary for the Committee to take special action, but it recommends the petition to the consideration of the Government.

13th May, 1887.
