Mr CHANEY - I ask the PostmasterGeneral whether there is any evidence of the existence in Australia of a racket which in America is, I understand, called payola by which record companies pay disc jockeys various sums of money so that certain recorded trash will feature prominently on radio programmes. Would the annual convention of Australian disc jockeys in a place called Surfers Paradise, which, I think, is in Victoria, have any significance in relation to this racket?
