Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1890.

No. 302, 1890.—Petition of Naiti Huata and 2 Others

No. 302, 1890.—Petition of Naiti Huata and 2 Others.

Petitioners pray that a piece of land containing forty acres, within the Maluku Block, in the Hawke's Bay District, may be granted to them as the children of Ripeka Huata.

I have the honour to report as follows: That the opinion of the Committee is that this petition be referred to the Government for inquiry as to whether there has been any failure on the part of the Native Land Court to protect the interests of the minors, as it is understood that the minutes of the Court show that the Court appointed Tamihana Huata successor to the mother of the children on condition that a reserve was to be conveyed to the children, and which has not only not been done, but owing to the action of the Court the children appear to be without any legal remedy.
