Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1896.

No. 448, 1895.—Petition of Horomona Rongoparae

No. 448, 1895.—Petition of Horomona Rongoparae.

Petitioner alleges that a piece of land called Aorangi, belonging to him, was wrongfully included in the sale to the Crown of the Umuopua Block, Hawke's Bay District; he prays for compensation.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommend that the Government should appoint two competent persons to visit the block in company with the Natives interested, for the purpose of determining whether the boundaries as agreed upon, when the original sale to the Crown took place; have been adhered to; and, if it is found that a mistake has been made, it is recommended that the petitioner be given some compensation.
