Mr O'CONNOR (DALLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that it was alleged in evidence before a law court in Sydney last week that certain radio announcers known as " disc jockeys " were paid the sum of £10 a week "to play the guts out of" certain records? Is the Minister aware of complaints that are being made of the similarity of the musical programmes being broadcast by four out of the six commercial stations in Sydney? Is the Minister also aware of complaints that these programmes are tedious and monotonous? Will he take steps to inquire into the allegations and ascertain whether they have any relation to fact?
