This question has to be prepared for introduction in the C.L.D. (who is Bogdanov’s deputy? Sapronov? This should be agreed with him).
It is not clear whether only the best mills have been brought out. Has the number of mills been properly reduced?
Or perhaps the “requirement” is earmarked for a heap of sickly and hopeless mills?
This and other questions should be clarified with greater precision.
 This assignment arose from a letter sent in by B. P. Pozern, Chairman of the Central Textile Administration, concerning the organisation of work of textile mills. Pozern’s letter of September 17, in reply to an inquiry from the C.P.C. and C.L.D. Managing Department, said that supplies were earmarked only for the best organised textile mills. In September 1921, the S.E.C. Presidium allocated funds for the Central Textile Administration to buy food and fuel and carry out capital repairs at enterprises.
