Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1889.

No. 296, 1889. —Petition of Paora Tuhaere

No. 296, 1889. —Petition of Paora Tuhaere.

Petitioner states that, having been left a piece of land, he, in ignorance, omitted to pay the necessary duty, amounting to 12s. He sold the land for £100, and the sum due to Government, with compound interest, now amounts to £15. Petitioner prays that he may not be compelled to pay more than the original amount of 12s.

I am directed to report as follows: That, in the opinion of the Committee, this petition should be referred to the Government for favourable consideration.

29th August, 1889.
