No. 19.

[Extract from New Zealand Gazette.]
Respecting Fees on Exchange of Land. Colonial Secretary's Office, Auckland, 6th June, 1844.

In order to enable land claimants to avail themselves more easily of the existing arrangements for exchanging land, I am directed by the Governor to give notice, that payment of any fee on the final report of a Commissioner of Land Claims may be deferred until the issue of a Crown grant for any land obtained in exchange for that in respect of which the said fee may be payable.

No grant consequent on exchange of land will be issued after six monthssubsequent to-the day of sale or exchange; therefore in order to obtain any such grant the fee must be paid within six months from the day of exchange.

By command.

Andrew Sinclair,
Colonial Secretary.
