No. 331.—Petition of Sir Walter Lawry Buller.
Petitioner prays that he may be heard, by his counsel, at the bar of the House, in opposition to the Horowhenua Block Act Amendment Bill, 1897, and that the House will not proceed with the Bill until he has been so heard.
I am directed to report that the petitioner did not apply to be heard before this Committee in support of his petition; and the Committee make no recommendation, but leave the House to determine whether the prayer of the petitioner be granted or otherwise.
No. 331.—Pitihana a Sir Walter Lawry Buller (a Waata Rauri Pura).
E inoi ana te kai-pitihana kia whakaaetia tona roia kia tu i te pa o te Whare ki te whakahe i te Pire whakatikatika i te Ture mo Horowhenua, 1897, a kia kaua te Whare e whakahaere i taua Pire kia rangona ra ano ana korero.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kaore te kai-pitihana i tono kia tukua ia kia korero ki te Komiti i ana kupu tautoko i tana pitihana; heoi kaore te Komiti e whai kupu, engari ka waiho ma te Whare e whakaae e whakakore ranei te inoi a te kai-pitihana.
