This Synod receives the report of the Consultation on Aboriginal Development and takes serious note of the conclusions recorded therein.

It acknowledges the Church’s responsibility to play its proper part in Aboriginal development, and it urges parishes, dioceses and provinces to support the Social Responsibilities Commission and the Missionary and Ecumenical Council together and in association with the Australian Council of Churches in their efforts to implement the report through education and action.

(The Bishop of Grafton, 26.5.73)
