No. 259.—Petition of Wikitoria Kahuao and 8 Others.

Petitioners pray that quarter-castes on the European side may be allowed to inherit property through their Native relatives.

I am directed to report as follows: That the Committee recommend the Government to provide by Act of Parliament that, in all legislative enactments relative to Native lands and property, the words "Natives of New Zealand" shall include half-castes and their descendants.
