Senator DAVIDSON (South Australia) -I take this opportunity of placing on record a tribute to Mr Dedman for his work in the resettlement department of the Australian Council of Churches in which he had a very active involvement after his parliamentary career. I had some association with him in this very extensive, complex and involved program and was able to see the way in which he used his talents and the opportunities available to him for the welfare of a host of unfortunate and distressed people from overseas who were seeking resettlement in this country. Today these people are very grateful for the practical and personal interest he took in them. The churches associated with the ventures were also extremely appreciative of the service which Mr Dedman rendered on their behalf. I and others particularly remember his sense of dedication and his humanitarianism in this sphere.

Question resolved in the affirmative, honourable senators standing in their places.
