Mr SPEAKER - There being no objection, leave is granted.

Mr CHIPP - I simply wish to pay a tribute to members of the delegation, in particular to the honourable member for Lang (Mr Stewart) who served as deputy leader of the delegation. I pay a tribute to his outstanding loyalty and co-operation which he gave to me and to the delegation during the visit. In this tribute I join the other members of the delegation - the honourable member for Henty (Mr Fox), the honourable member for Maranoa (Mr Corbett), the honourable member for Wills (Mr Bryant) and Senators Scott and Dittmer. I know that I would be fulfilling their wishes in saying to the Government that they appreciated the opportunity of visiting these countries. We found it extremely valuable in gaining a greater knowledge of them. We would also like to think that we left behind us in those countries a greater knowledge of Australia and Australians. Speaking personally, it was a great pleasure and, indeed, an honour for me to lead such a team of Australians abroad.
