Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1898.

[No. 111.—Petition of Ngatete Karaka te Aho and three Others (No. 1).]

page 18

No. 111.—Petition of Ngatete Karaka te Aho and three Others (No. 1).

Petitioners allege that they handed over a block of their land, called Purapura, to be sold to cover the cost of survey of the Opuatia Block, on the understanding that they were to receive extra interests in Opuatia to cover the loss of the first-mentioned block; this agreement never having been complied with, they pray for inquiry and redress.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition be referred to the Government for favourable consideration.

3rd November, 1898.

[Translation.]
No. 111.—Pitihana a Ngatete Karaka te Aho me etahi atu tokotoru (No. 1).

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana i tukuna e ratou kia hokona to ratou poraka whenua a Purapura hei whakaea i te ruri o Opuatia Poraka, i runga i te mahara kua whakaaetia ka hoatu etahi atu hea mo ratou i Opuatia hei utu mo Purapura Poraka; na i te mea kaore ano taua whakaaetanga i whakatutukitia, na reira ka inoi ratou kia uiuia a kia whakaorangia to ratou mate.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia uiuia paitia.
