You have missed the deadlines for submitting reports to the C.L.D. as established by law—October 15–November 1. Your reports have not been received at the C.L.D. I hereby reprove you for your unpunctuality and delay, and demand that you should meet the deadlines. At once let the C.L.D. know the full names and the offices of the persons responsible for the timely compilation and submission of reports. Pass the same instructions on to the uyezds.
 Regional Economic Conferences or councils were local C.L.D. organs set up in early 1921, under the decision of the Eighth All-Russia Congress of Soviets (December 1920).
 The deadlines for the reports were determined by a decision of the Ail-Russia C.E.C. of June 30, 1921, entitled “On Local Economic Conferences, Their Reporting and Complying with the Instructions of the C.P.C. and C.L.D.”, which was drafted by Lenin (see present edition, Vol. 42, pp. 303–04).
