Mr PEARSON (Essendon) — I rise today to remember Del King, who recently passed away at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. I got to know Del through her work as a police officer working on the Flemington public housing estate. Del was a past president of the Rotary Flemington and hiked Kokoda on two separate occasions with disadvantaged students from Flemington. Del was a kind, caring person who just got on with making our community a better place. Her passing makes us all the poorer. My thoughts are with her family at this difficult time. Vale, Del King.
