No. 654, 1903.—Petition of Arapata Hapuku and 42 Others.
Petitioners pray that the partition orders in Waihua Nos. 1 and 2 Blocks may be cancelled, and that the Native Land Court may be empowered to reconsider the partition.
I am directed to report that the Committee recommends that this petition be referred to the Government for the purpose of having legislation introduced to enable the Native Land Court to reopen the question of partition of the blocks referred to.
