Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1901.

No. 776.—Petition of Tawhai Rangiwhakaewa

No. 776.—Petition of Tawhai Rangiwhakaewa.

Petitioner alleges that the Tautane Reserve, Hawke's Bay, was wrongfully awarded to two persons only, and he prays for readjustment of ownership.

I am directed to report that, as the persons represented by the petitioner had not an opportunity of being heard before the Native Land Court in 1898, the Committee is of opinion the Government should be recommended to introduce such legislation as will give all Natives claiming to have an interest in the reserve an opportunity to appeal.

1st October, 1901.
