No. 209—Petition of Inia Tuhata and 4 Others.
Petitioners pray that an inquiry may be made into the title of the whole Ngarara Block, and that their claims to a subdivision may be ordered to be reheard by the Native Land Court.
I am directed to report as follows: That this being another petition for rehearing after the decision of the Chief Judge of the Native Land Court to the contrary, the Committee, without expressing any opinion as to the alleged grievances of the petitioners, consider that some general legislation should be introduced this session by the Government dealing with appeals from decisions in respect of rehearings. In this case the Committee recommends the Government to make careful inquiry into the allegations of the petition.
