Six presented no demand whatever owing to rules. Bureau voted no condemnation whatever. Repudiate bare faced lie of liquidators.
 In connection with the December meeting of the I.S.B. the liquidationist Novaya Rabochaya Gazeta (No. 97 for December 3, 1913) published a telegram from London reporting that the Bolsheviks’ demand that the Social-Democratic Labour group in the Duma (the Six) should be represented by one of its members in the Inter parliamentary Section of the Second International was rejected by the I.S.B. As a matter of fact this question was not discussed by the I.S.B. and the Bolsheviks presented no such demand, since according to the Rules of the Inter-parliamentary Section only one socialist group from each parliament, the one that had most deputies, was to be represented on it. In the case of the Russian Duma this representative was one of the liquidationist “Seven”, who had a nominal majority of one. This question was dealt with by Lenin in his article “How the Liquidators Are Deceiving the Workers” (see Collected Works, Fifth [Russian] Ed., Vol. 24, pp. 205–07).
