No. 188.—Petition of Kurupohatu Ruru and Others.
Petitioners complain that a portion of their reserve (Te Karoro) near the mouth of the Clutha River has been wrongfully taken from them. They pray for restitution.
I am directed to report that, after reading the departmental reports on this petition, the Committee has no recommendation to make.
No. 188.—Pitihana a Kurupohatu Ruru me etahi atu.
E ki ana nga kai-pitihana, ko tetahi taha o ta ratou rahui (Te Karoro) e tata ana ki te puau o te awa o Clutha kua tangohia hetia i a ratou. E inoi ana ratou kia whakahokia ki a ratou taua whenua.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei, kua ata korerotia e te Komiti te ripoata a te tari, a kaore kau he kupu a te Komiti mo tenei pitihana.
