Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1889.

No. 135, 1889. —Petition of Horomona Paatu

No. 135, 1889. —Petition of Horomona Paatu.

Petitioner complains that through the action of Mr. Commissioner Mackay his lands have been awarded to the people who had no right to them. He now prays that a Land Court may be held at Riverton to compel the people holding his land to prove the title.

I am directed to report as follows: That the Committee wish to call the attention of the Government to the fact that a similar petition was reported upon on the 22nd November, 1887. It seems nothing has been done to satisfy the petitioner. The Committee desire to express regret at this, and again refer the subject to the Government for immediate action.

21st August, 1889.
