Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1888.

No. 504.—Petition of Heperi Pikirangi and 13 Others

No. 504.—Petition of Heperi Pikirangi and 13 Others.

Petitioners pray that a rehearing of the Tauponuiatia Block may take place, as they allege the land was wrongly awarded by the Native Land Court.

I am directed to report as follows: That the above-mentioned petition for rehearing has been referred to your Committee, but time will not permit of its being considered this session. The inquiry into petitions of this character necessarily occupies considerable time, and requires evidence not easily obtainable by a Committee sitting in Wellington. The Committee is of opinion that the whole of these petitions should be referred to the Government, with a recommendation that inquiry should be made into each case, with the view of next session having some tribunal appointed to deal with such cases as the Government finds, on inquiry, deserve consideration.
