Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1898.

Final Report

Final Report.

I have the honour to report that the Native Affairs Committee held its final meeting of the present session this morning, being the fifty-ninth.

With the 53 petitions held over from last session, the Committee had before it 150 petitions. Of these 103 have been reported on; the remaining 47 are unavoidably held over. (See accompanying list.)

The following Bills were before the Committee and after due consideration reported on: The East Coast Native Land Board Bill, the Native Lands Settlement and Administration Bill, the Landless Natives Bill.

In connection with the Native Lands Settlement and Administration Bill the Committee took a large amount of evidence, which will appear in the Appendices to the Journals. (See I.–3A.)

Before closing the following resolution was passed, and I was instructed to report the same, viz.: "That the Committee desires to draw attention to the necessity of providing better accommodation than has hitherto been the case for the transaction of business in connection with Native affairs, and it is recommended that a room of extra dimensions should be set apart for the Committee and separate rooms for the interpreters and Native witnesses."
