No. 535.—Petition of Wi Katene Paremata and 4 Others.
Petitioners urge their claims to be included in ownership of Whakapuaka Block, and pray that legislation may be introduced to give them a rehearing, and in the meantime that Huria Matenga, the present holder of the title, be prevented from alienating any part of the block.
I am directed to report that, as the petitioners have notified that they wish to withdraw the petitions with a view to bringing the matter forward early next session, the Committee has no recommendation to make.
No. 535.—Pitihana a Wi Katene Paremata me etahi atu toko wha.
E aki ana nga kai-pitihana i a ratou kereeme kia whakaurua ratou ki Whakapuaka Poraka, a e inoi ana ratou kia mahia he ture e whiwhi ai ratou i tetahi whakawa tuarua mo taua whenua, a kia araia te hoko te tuku ranei o taua whenua e Huria Matenga, ara, e te wahine kei a ia taua whenua e pupuri ana inaianei.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, i te mea kua puta te whakaatu a nga kai-pitihana e hiahia ana ratou ki te unu i te pitihana mo nga ra tuatahi o te tuunga o te Paremete e haere ake nei kokiri mai ai ano, kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti mo tenei pitihana.
