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

[No. 145 Sess. 1.—Petition of Mere Nako.]

No. 145 Sess. 1.—Petition of Mere Nako.

Petitioner states that a piece of land at Motueka belongs to her, but was sold by a Native called Tiporaite without her knowledge. She prays that her son may be placed in possession of the land in question.

I am direeted to report as follows: That this Committee is of opinion that all expired leases should not be renewed unless the consent of the owner or owners is obtained, and in this particular case steps should be taken by the Government to put the petitioner in possession of her property with the least possible delay.

30th November, 1887.

[Translation.]
No. 145, Sess. I.—Pukapuka-inoi a Mere Nako.

E ki ana te kai-pitihana nona tetahi whenua i Motueka, erangi na tetahi tangata i hoko ko Tiporaite te ingoa, kihai ia i mohio e hokona ana. E inoi ana ia kia whakaurua tona tama ki runga i taua whenua e tonoa nei.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: E whakaaro ana te Komiti me kaua e whakahoutia nga riihi o nga whenua (ara) ki te kore nga tangata nona te whenua e whakaae, a i runga i tenei keehi ko te mea tika kia hohoro tonu te tahuri te Kawanatanga ki te whakauru i te kai-pitihana ki runga ka tona whenua.
