The C.P.C. directs the Commissariat for Railways to draw up within a week a detailed decree (or instructions) concerning the participation of workers and workers’ organisations, especially the trade unions, in the management of the railways, in training workers for management, etc.
 The draft decree on improving railway transport in connection with military freightages was discussed at a meeting of the C.P.C. on December 2, 1919. During this discussion Lenin introduced his motion, which was incorporated in § 10 of the decree. With this addendum and other amendments the decree was adopted by the C.P.C. and published in part in Izvestia No. 281 for December 14, 1919.
