No. 717, 1904.—Petition of Ani Kirimana.
Petitioner prays for restitution of Te Kopuni Block, Tolaga Bay.
I am directed to report that the Committee is of opinion that, subject to the protection of all lawfully registered dealings which have been had with the land, the title should be fully reinvestigated by the Native Land Court, in order that any miscarriage of justice which has taken place may, as far as possible, be remedied; it is therefore recommended that this petition should be referred to the Government for favourable consideration.
