Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1888.

No. 100.—Petition of Paora Rerepu and 327 Others

No. 100.—Petition of Paora Rerepu and 327 Others.

Petitioners pray that the boundaries of the Mohaka and Waihua Blocks may be altered; also, that the Crown and Native Lands Rating Act may not be applied to the external boundaries of those blocks. They also complain of the different way the Europeans deal with those lands which they have leased.

I am directed to report as follows: That, with regard to that part of the petition referring to the Mohaka-Waihua Blocks, the whole question is already before the Committee for consideration on another petition. Then, with respect to the Crown and Native Lands Rating Act, the Government have already given notice of its repeal; and, concerning the statement of the petitioners, as to the unsatisfactory condition of joint tenancy, that is beyond the Committee. Therefore there is no recommendation to make.
