No. 269, 1902.—Petition of Erueti Tamaikoha and 10 Others.

Petitioners complain that the partition of the Tahora 2a Block, Opotiki district, was improperly carried out at a Court held at Gisborne, in their absence, and through the misrepresentation of an interested party. They pray that the matter may be reinvestigated before a properly qualified tribunal sitting in the district wherein the land is situated.

I am directed to report that the Committee strongly recommends that legislation be passed to enable a reinvestigation to be held as requested.

4th August, 1903.

[Translation.]
No. 269, 1902.—Pitihana a Erueti Tamaikoha me etahi atu kotahi tekau.

E ki ana nga kai-pitihana ko te wawahanga o Tahora 2a Poraka, Takiwa o Opotiki, i whakahaerea hetia, e tetahi Kooti i tu ki Kihipane, i a ratou e ngaro ana i runga i nga mahi whakawai a tetahi tangata e whai paanga ana ki taua whenua. E inoi ana ratou kia whakawakia ano taua whenua ki te aroaro o tetahi Kooti tino whai mana, a me tu taua Kooti ki te takiwa kei reira te whenua e takoto ana.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, e tino kaha ana te whakaaro o te Komiti me paahi he ture kia taea ai he whakawa tuarua mo te whenua a tonoa nei.
