Small Grazing Runs System.
Mr J. M'Kenzie has presented a petition from a large.number of settlors m county Waihemo and adjacent counties, m reference to settlement on t'ae Small Grazing RunsJSystem of run 121 and its various subdivisions. The petitioners refer to the fact that the Otago Waste Lands Board would have applied run 121 to sm.all grazing run purposes m February last, but that the Minister of Lands declined to give effect to the resolution of the Board, and to the prayer of the settlers recommending and requesting that the said lands bo set aside for settlement under the Small Grazing Run System. They also allege that the reason given by the Minister of Lands for his intentions were misleading, and that his letter to the Board at the time indicated his intention to discontinue the Small Run System. For these and other reasons they pray the House to take all the circumstances into consideration with a view of the maintenance of the Small Run System, and w,ith. a view to: proper provision being made for settlement m the Waihemo and adjoining districts, and m presenting the petition Mr M'Kensrie moved that it be referred to the Waste Lands Committee, and. this was agreed to.
