Abstract: Let $ K$ and $ S$ be compact Hausdorff spaces and $ \theta $ a continuous function from $ K$ onto $ S$. Then for any Banach space $ E$ the map $ f \mapsto f \circ \theta $ isometrically embeds $ C(S,E)$ as a closed subspace of $ C(K,E)$. In this note we prove that when $ E'$ has the Radon-Nikodým property, every weakly compact operator on $ C(S,E)$ can be lifted to a weakly compact operator on $ C(K,E)$. As a consequence, we prove that the compact dispersed spaces $ K$ are characterized by the fact that $ C(K,E)$ has the Dunford-Pettis property whenever $ E$ has.
