No. 759, 1903.—Petition of Hare Teimana and 277 Others.
Petitioners pray that legislation may be introduced to give them an opportunity of proving their claims to the Maungatautari Block, Waikato District.
I am directed to report that, subject to the protection of all lawful dealings which have hitherto 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; the Committee therefore recommends that this petition should be referred to the Government for favourable consideration.
