No. 237.—Petition of T. Fraser and 2 Others.

Petitioners complain that certain statements by a Judge of the Native Appellate Court have caused a doubt as to the security of their leasehold titles held under orders of the said Court, and they pray that steps may be taken to assure them absolute security of tenure.

I am directed to report that the Committee recommends this petition should be referred to the Government in order that legislation may be passed to give the petitioners the relief they pray for.

5th September, 1901.

[Translation. ]
No. 237.—Pitihana a T. Fraser me etahi atu tokorua.

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana, i runga i te putanga o etahi kupu a tetahi o nga Tiati o te Kooti Piira Maori, kua pa he awangawanga ki a ratou kei te mana ranei kaore ranei nga taitara o a ratou riihi e puritia nei i raro i nga ota a taua Kooti, a e inoi ana ratou kia whakahaerea etahi tikanga hei tino whakapumau i nga tau o a ratou riihi.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro o te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga i runga i te tikanga me mahi he ture hei hoatu ki nga kai-pitihana i te ora e inoitia nei e ratou.
