Nos. 776 and 787, 1903. —Petitions of Otene Pitau and 28 Others, and Eruera Te Kura and 55 Others.
Petitioners protest against the taking of land out of the Waiohiharore and Te Awapuni Blocks, near Gisborne, for cemetery purposes, and they pray for restitution.
I am directed to report that the Committee has no recommendation to make with regard to these petitions.
Nos. 776 me 787, 1903.—Pitihana a Otene Pitau me etahi atu e rua tekan ma waru, me Eruera Te Kura me etahi atu e rima tekau ma rima.
E Whakahe ana nga kai-pitihana ki te tangohanga o etahi wahi whenua i roto o Waiohiharore me Te Awapuni Poraka e tata ana ki Kihipane, hei Urupa, hei wahi patunga kau hoki, a e inoi ana kia whakahokia kia ratou.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti mo runga i tenei pitihana.
