Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1888.

[No. 282.—Petition of Hemi Kaipau and 19 Others.]

No. 282.—Petition of Hemi Kaipau and 19 Others.

Petitioners, who are owners of a block of land in the Poverty Bay District called Mangatuna No. 2, pray that a rehearing of that block may take place, as they allege it has been awarded to the wrong people.

I am directed to report as follows: That the Committee is of the opinion that there has not been sufficient evidence in support of this petition, but would recommend this and all such cases to the consideration of the Government, as a suggestion to them that they should devise some proper method of determining the merits of such applications.

[Translation.]
No. 282.—Pukapuka-inoi a Hemi Kaipau me etahi atu 19.

Ko nga kai-pitihana he tangata whaitake ki tetahi poraka whenua i te Takiwa o Turanga e huaina nei taua whenua ko Mangatuna Nama 2 e inoi ana ratou kia ara ano te whakawa notemea hoki kua whakataua ki te hunga kore take.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: Ki te mahara o te Komiti kihai i nui nga korero whakatika mai i tenei pitihana, engari hoki he mea tika ano kia whiriwhiri tahitia e te Kawanatanga me etahi atu tono penei ano te ahua hei tohu kia ratou kia rapua mai tetahi tikanga mo aua tu tono.
