Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1891, No. 2.

[No. 213, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Tanguru Tuhua and 61 Others.]

No. 213, 1891, Sess. II.—Petition of Tanguru Tuhua and 61 Others.

Petitionrs pray that their claim on the Waikopiro Block may be investigated and relief afforded.

I am directed to report as follows: That, when passing the 24th clause of "The Native Land Court Act 1886 Amendment Act, 1888," it was clearly the intention of the Legislature that, after the passing of the Act above mentioned, all applications for rehearing should be determined by the Chief Judge of the Native Land Court in open Court, and, as the Chief Judge has, in accordance with the provision above named, already heard the application for a rehearing in open Court of the case referred to in the petition, and granted such application, the Committee considers no action should be taken upon this petition, but, in order that the petitioners may have the case properly inquired into, the petition, together with the evidence taken thereon, should be referred to the Government for consideration.

1st September, 1891.
