Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1893.

[No. 161.—Petition of Tenetahi.]

No. 161.—Petition of Tenetahi.

Petitioner complains that the Government has taken his land in the Little Barrier Island without giving him proper compensation. He prays for relief.

page 10

I have the honour to report that the Committee is of opinion it is desirable, in the interests of the colony, that the Government should endeavour to acquire Tenetahi's interest in the Little Barrier Island. That, failing his agreeing to accept a reasonable price for the same, facilities should be afforded by the Government for the petitioner obtaining a partition order from the Native Land Court.

8th August, 1893.

[Translation.]
No. 161.—Pukupukua inoi a Tenetahi.

E ki ana te kai-pitihana kua tangohia tona whenua a Hauturu e te Kawanatanga i te mea kahore i tukua nga utu tika ki aia. A e inoi ana ia ki tetahi ora.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: Ki te whakaaro o tenei Komiti he mea tika i runga i nga huarahi whakahaere o to Koroni kia tahuri te Kawanatanga ki te whakamatau ki te hoko i te take me nga paanga a Tenetahi ki Hauturu. A ki te kore ia e whakaae ki te tango i nga utu i whakaarohia ai he utu tika mo tona hea i taua Moutere. Me tuku etahi tikanga e te Kawanatanga kia ahei ai te kai-pitihana te whiwhi ki tetahi ota wehe mai i tona hea e te Kooti Whenua Maori.
