Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1887, No. 2.

No. 304, Sess. II.—Petition of Jane Brown

No. 304, Sess. II.—Petition of Jane Brown.

Petitioner, who is a half-caste, had 500 acres of land granted to herself and her sister with restrictions against alienation. She prays that those restrictions may be removed so that she may deal with the land as she thinks proper.

I am directed to report as follows: That, so far as Mrs. Brown and her sister are concerned, the restriction making their land inalienable appears unnecessary and inequitable, and the Committee would recommend the Government to withdraw it.

29th November, 1887.
