Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1901.

[No. 392, 1900.—Petition of Haora Tareranui and 9 Others.]

No. 392, 1900.—Petition of Haora Tareranui and 9 Others.

Petitioners allege that when the Moehau Block was ceded to the Crown it was agreed that they should have a reserve of 1,856 acres set aside for them; they now find that this reserve (Moehau No. 1G, or Waiaro) contains 500 acres short of the area agreed upon, and they pray for restitution of the land, and compensation for the kauri timber taken therefrom, and for other losses.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition should be referred to the Government for favourable consideration.

6th August, 1901.

No. 392, 1900.—Pitihana a Haora Tareranui me etahi atu tokoiwa.

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana i te wa i tukua ai a Moehau Poraka ki te Karauna, i whakaaetia me wehe he rahui mo ratou kia 1,856 nga eka, na i naianei kua kite ratou e 500 nga eka o taua rahui (o Moehau No. 1G, ara, Waiaro) kua ngaro, a e inoi ana kia whakahokia atu taua whenua a kia utua ratou mo nga rakau kauri kua pau te harihari atu i taua whenua, a kia utua ratou mo etahi atu mate kua pa ki a ratou.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria paitia.
