Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1896.

No. 303.—Petition of Sarah Thoms

No. 303.—Petition of Sarah Thoms.

Petitioner prays for restitution of certain lands set apart by the Ngatitoa Tribe for the benefit of her grandmother, Te Ua (the first wife of Joseph Thoms), and her descendants, the said lands having wrongfully passed into possession of the family of Joseph Thoms by a second (European) wife.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommend this petition be referred to the Government in order that the petitioner's case may be dealt with by the Commissioners appointed to attend to matters relating to the landless Natives of the South Island.

15th September, 1896.
