No. 560, 1904.—Petition of John Bryers and 14 Others.
Petitioners pray that the Tokerau Council may be instructed to deal with the question of ownership of the Omapere Lake, Bay of Islands district.
I am directed to report that, as the question referred to is before the Tokerau Council, and the rights of the Natives are still preserved, the Committee has no recommendation to make.
No. 560, 1904.—Pitihana a Hone Paraea me etahi atu tekau ma wha.
E Inoi ana nga kai-pitihana kia whakahaua te Kaunihera o Tokerau ki te whakawa i nga take paanga ki Omapere Roto, i te takiwa o Peiwhairangi.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, i te mea kei te aroaro o te Kaunihera o Tokerau e takoto ana taua take, a i te mea kei te tiakina tonutia nga take paanga o nga Maori, no reira kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti.
