No. 277, 1899.—Petition of J. A. Boyes and 7 Others.
Petitioners, who are holders of informal leases in the Native reserves at Motueka, Nelson, pray that they may be granted new leases at rents current in the district, instead of having to compete with the general public at auction.
I am directed to report that, as the Committee is advised this matter has been settled, it has no recommendation to make.
