Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1895

[Nos. 35, 105, and 156.—Petitions of Paratene Matenga and 181 Others; Taituha Hape and 68 Others; H. Tare Tikao and 22 Others.]

Nos. 35, 105, and 156.—Petitions of Paratene Matenga and 181 Others; Taituha Hape and 68 Others; H. Tare Tikao and 22 Others.

Petitioners allege that the Maoris do not receive proper notices relating to the rating of their land, and that the rating-values are wrongly assessed. They pray that the Native race may be exempt from taxation.

I have the honour to report that the Committee recommends that these petitions should be referred to the Government for the purpose of having the allegations as to insufficient rating-notices and wrong valuations fully inquired into; and they also recommend that all local bodies should be instructed to insure that Native owners are made fully aware of all matters relating to the rating of their properties.

26th July, 1895.

[Translation.]
Nos. 35, 105, me 156.—Pitihana a Paratene Matenga me etahi atu kotahi rau e waru tekau ma tahi; a Taituha Hape me etahi atu e ono tekau ma waru; a H. Tare Tikao me etahi atu e rua teka ma rua.

E Ki ana nga kai-pitihana kaore e tae atu ana ki nga Maori nga panui whakaatu mo nga reiti o o ratou whenua, a ko tetahi e he ana te whakatau o nga moni o te whenua e kimihia ai nga moni reiti. E noi ana ratou kia kaua te iwi Maori e utu i tenei mea i te Taake.

E whai honore ana ahau ki te ripoata ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me tuku atu enei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia tino uiuia nga whakapae mo te kore panui whakaatu atu i nga reiti me te he o te whakatau o nga moni o te whenua; me whai kupu hoki te Komiti ki te Kawanatanga kia tae he kupu tohutohu mana ki nga hunga whakahaere takiwa a kia tino whakamaramatia e ratou ki nga Maori whai whenua nga tikanga katoa e pa ana ki te reititanga o o ratou whenua.
