Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1901.

[No. 458, 1899.—Petition of Ihakara te Raro and 16 Others.]

No. 458, 1899.—Petition of Ihakara te Raro and 16 Others.

Petitioners complain of the injustice done in connection with the taking of land for roads through the Awarua and Motukawa Blocks, and from Moawhango to Te Horo, and pray for restitution.

I am directed to report that the Committee is of opinion that the petitioners have a just cause of complaint, as the quantity of land taken for reading purposes appears to be most excessive; it is therefore recommended that this petition be referred to the Government for consideration.

30th July, 1901.

Translation.
No. 458, 1899.—Pitihana a Ihakara te Raro me etahi atu tekau ma ono.

E tangi ana mo te he me te mate kua pa ki a ratou i runga i te tangohanga hei rori o etahi wahi whenua o nga Poraka o Te Awarua me Motukawa me etahi wahi whenua hoki timata i Moawhango tae noa ki Te Horo, a e inoi ana kia whakahokia atu aua wahi whenua ki a ratou.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti, e tika ana te whakahe a nga kai-pitihana, notemea hoki mehemea nei he rahi rawa atu te whenua i tangohia hei rori, na reira ka whai kupu te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria.
