No. 889, 1904.—Petition of Thomas Cook and 2 Others.
Petitioners pray for consideration as landless Natives.
I am directed to report that the Committee is of opinion that the question of dealing with landless Natives is one of a general character, and for the Government to deal with; in this special case the Committee has no recommendation to make.
No. 889, 1904.—Pitihana a Thomas Cook me etahi atu toko-rua.
E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakaarohia ratou i runga i te mea he Maori whenua kore ratou.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro a te Komiti ko tenei take, ara ko te whakarite whenua mo nga Maori whenua kore he take whanui, a ma te Kawanatanga tena e whakahaere, a mo runga mo tenei pitihana kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti.
