No. 340.—Petition of Rewi Maaka and 16 Others.
Petitioners, who are residents of Whangarae, near Nelson, pray for assistance to purchase a vessel to carry their produce to market, they being heavily handicapped by present exorbitant charges of conveyance.
I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition be referred to the Government for consideration.
No. 340.—Pitihana a Rewi Maaka me etahi atu tekau ma ono.
Kei Whangarae, e tata ana ki Whakatu, nga kai-pitihana e noho ana, a e inoi ana kia tautokona ratou kia ahei ai ratou ki te hoko i tetahi kaipuke hei harihari i a ratou kau, hipi witi, me era atu mea ki te makete, i te mea he nui rawa atu to ratou mate i te nui o nga moni e tonoa ana ki a ratou mo ana mea.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia uiuia.
