MAORI EX-SERVICEMEN***

LANDS FOR SETTLEMENT P.A. WELLINGTON, Monday. Accompanied by the Maori member of t*ie Rehabilitation Board, Mr. H. H. Rankin, of Kaikohe, and the chief fields supervisor of the Native Department, Mr. A. F. Blackburn, the Director of Rehabilitation, Mr. F. W. Baker, left Wellington this morning on an extensive tour of the North Island.

The tour will occupy three weeks, and the object is to make a personal approach to the Maori people throughout the island regarding the availability of land for the settlement of Maori ex-servicemen, either by way of purchase or otherwise.

Meetings have been arranged with representatives of the Maori race in the Hawke's Bay, East Coast, Auckland, North Auckland, Waikato and Taranaki districts. It is hoped to make a special visit to Tokaanu and Masterton at a later date. The absence of sufficient suitable and available land has been the chief difficulty so far experienced in the settlement of Maori and pakeha servicemen.
