No. 355, 1897.—Petition of Merehira Paerau.

Petitioner alleges that a reserve of 1,000 acres, called Pukereretu, near Feilding, should have been set aside for herself and younger sister from the sale of the Rangitikei-Manawatu lands, and prays for inquiry and relief.

I am directed to report that there is evidence that the petitioner applied to the Commissioner for this reserve, but her application was not given effect to. In the opinion of this Committee the Government should favourably consider the matter by holding an inquiry.

3rd November, 1898.
