Petitioner alleges that, owing to interference on part of Government Land Purchase Department, he has been unable to complete certain transactions in connection with lands at Maketu. He prays that the recommendation of a Royal Commission, which reported on the question in 1881, may be fully carried into effect, or that other relief may be granted.
