Kursky’s Deputy (if Kursky is absent)
What are you doing for the publication of a code of laws of the Soviet power? Is the codification department asleep or is it preparing something for the fifth anniversary?

 On September 26, 1922, N. V. Krylenko gave a detailed reply to Lenin’s letter, informing him that in addition to the already adopted criminal and criminal procedure codes, the next session of the All-Russia C.E.C. to be held in October is to consider the adoption of a code of laws on the judicial system and a code on civil substantive law.
