Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1893.

[No. 351.—Petition of Hera te Upokoiri.]

No. 351.—Petition of Hera te Upokoiri.

Petitioner prays that alienation of any portion of the Horowhenua Block may be stopped until satisfactory arrangements are made in regard to the alleged trust in connection therewith.

I have the honour to report that the Committee is of opinion that the Government, before purchasing any portion of the Horowhenua Block, should cause inquiries to be made as to the alleged trust in connection with the same, and, if satisfied that a trust was implied, legislation should be introduced this session to protect the interests of the tribe.

23rd August, 1893.

[Translation.]
No. 351.—Pukapuka inoi a Hera te Upokoiri.

E inoi ana te kai-pitihana kia kaua rawa tetahi wahi o te Horowhenua Poraka e tukua kia hokona kia taea rano te ata whakatakoto nga tikanga mo te Tiaki i runga i taua whenua.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: E whakaaro ana tenei Komiti me whakahau e te Kawanatanga kia uiuia nga tikanga o te Tiaki e kiia nei i runga i taua Poraka i mua o te hokonga o tetahi wahi o taua whenua e te Kawanatanga a ki te marama i tika ano taua Tiaki me hanga he ture i tenei nohoanga o te Paremete hei tiaki i nga take o te Iwi.
