Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1895

No. 26.—Petition of Inia Tuhuru and 25 Others

No. 26.—Petition of Inia Tuhuru and 25 Others.

Petitioners pray that "The Westland and Nelson Native Reserves Act, 1887," may be so amended as to allow the Public Trustee to hand over certain funds, in connection with the Arahura reserves, to the Native owners.

I have the honour to report that the Committee is of opinion that to give effect to the prayer of the petition it would be necessary to provide fresh legislation. This being the case, they recommend that the Government should make such inquiry as will enable it to determine whether such a step would be in the interests of the petitioners.

20th August, 1895.
