Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1901.

No. 783.—Petition of Wirihana Hunia

No. 783.—Petition of Wirihana Hunia.

Petitioner objects to part of Horowhenua No. 11 being included in Horowhenua No. 9, and prays that subsections (a) and (b) of clause 8 of "The Horowhenua Block Act, 1896," may be rendered void and of no effect.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this matter should be referred to the Government for inquiry and consideration, and if after such inquiry it be found that a mistake has been made with regard to the ownership of the land in question the Government should bring in remedial legislation next session; but, on the other hand, if it is found no mistake has occurred such steps should be taken as will finally dismiss the claim.
