18. I. 1919
I direct you to report to me immediately all complaints received by the Managing Department of the Council of People’s Commissars against all government offices and persons; complaints in writing must be reported to me within twenty-four hours, oral ones—within forty-eight hours.
The Managing Department should introduce a special registration of these complaints, the person in charge of the office of the Managing Department being responsible for careful supervision over the fulfilment of my instructions written on these complaints.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
