THE iTaukei Land Trust Board general manager Alipate Qetaki was asked about government's role in the iTaukei Land Trust Board by the Tailevu Provincial Council member.
They said many decisions were being made according to government's decision rather than what the landowners needed.
Provincial council member Ratu Isoa Tikoca also asked whether government contributed financially to the board.
"I would like to highlight this because even though government does not contribute financially to TLTB their decisions in running the trust board is immense," Ratu Isoa said.
"For them to make huge decisions within TLTB and to change the various laws and regulation is a concern for us here at the provincial council."
He raised his concerns on the Native Land Amendment Decree Number 31 of 2009 and the Native Land Amendment Regulation on 2010 on removing special entitlement of chiefs and turaga ni mataqali from the share of rents and royalty and there is also the Landuse Decree number 36 of 2010 to bring, select areas of Native land directly under government control was also raised.
Mr Qetaki said TLTB hoped to meet members of the council who looked after the land issues to address the concerns highlighted on native land.
He added there was a new unit called the Landowners Affairs unit which looked after all landowner's grievances regarding iTaukei land.
