CHANGE OF NAME

"NATIVE" TO "MAORI"

Parliamentary Reporter.

WELLINGTON, this day.

Among the Parliamentary Select Committees appointed each session is a Native Affairs Committee, and in setting it up in the House of Representatives yesterday the Minister of Native Affairs, Mr. Mason, altered the word "Native" to "Maori," stating that, although this seemed a trifling formality, It was more in accord with the position of the Maori people in New Zealand and their pride of race. It was preferable to the indefinite word which it would replace. •The change was strongly commended by Mr. E. T. Tirakatene, the representative of the Maori people on the Executive Council. He felt that the Minister was doing something which his people would regard as notable, and it would meet, with their high approval. Answering a member who reminded the speaker that there was still a Native Trustee and a Native. Land Cour, Mr. Tirikatene said that the same viewpoint should prevail and the excellent standard set by the Native Minister could be followed still further.
