No. 165.—Petition of Hana Pewene.

Petitioner alleges that certain interests in the Huritini Block were conveyed to her by her relative, Moko Hikitanga, whose claims in the block were investigated by the Native Land Court at the expense of the petitioner, and after the investigation the Judge found that the deed of gift was not sanctioned by law. She asserts that if the Judge had at once told her that the deed was illegal, she would not have been put to the expense of this investigation.

The Committee are of opinion that the Government might fairly consider whether the fees of the Court regarding Moko's claim should not be returned to her.

27th September, 1893.
