No. 475, 1903.—Petition of Aterea Petera and 80 Others.
Petitioners complain that the trusts in connection with certain lands in the Waitemata Parish, Auckland, vested in the bishop of the Roman Catholic Church, are not being carried out, and they pray for investigation with a view to having the land used for the benefit of the Maoris.
I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition should be referred to the Government for inquiry.
No. 475, 1903.—Pitihana a Aterea Petera me etahi atu e waru tekau.
E Ki ana nga kai-pitihana ko nga tiakitanga o etahi whenua i te Parihi o Waitemata, Akarana, i tukua ki te Pihopa o te Haahi Katorika, kaore i te whakatutukitia, a e inoi ana kia tu he uiuinga i runga i te whakaaro kia whakahaeretia aua whenua hei painga mo nga Maori.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, ki te whakaaro a te Komiti me tuku atu tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia uiuia.
