No. 314, 1898.—Petition of Waingarunui and 16 Others.
Petitioners pray that their claims to certain reserves near Waitara, in the Taranaki District, may be recognised.
I have the honour to report that, as the petitioners have, through no fault of their own, been left out of the reserves they lay claim to, and as they have not sufficient land for their support, the Committee recommend that the Government should make full inquiry into their case and grant them some rehef. (Report on similar petition, 28th August, 1895, repeated.)
No. 314, 1898.—Pitihana a Waingarunui me etahi atu tekau ma ono.
E inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakaaetia a ratou kereeme ki etahi rahui e tata ana ki Waitara, Takiwa o Taranaki.
E whai honore ana ahau ki te ripoata, i te mea ehara i nga kai-pitihana te he i mahue ai ratou i te rarangi ingoa o aua rahui e kereemetia nei e ratou, a i te mea hoki kaore e rahi ana o ratou whenua hei oranga mo ratou, na reira ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me tino uiui e te Kawanatanga tenei putake a me hoatu tetahi ora mo ratou.
