[1] The question of Centrosoyuz was discussed at a meeting of the C.P.C. on July 15, 1921 which heard reports by L. M. Khinchuk “On the Organisation of Commodity Exchange and the Need for Speeding Up and Expanding Work in This Direction” and N. P. Bryukhanov “On Supervision Over Centrosoyuz in Pursuance of the Decision of the Council of People’s Commissars of June 14’ 1921, With a View to Obtaining the Maximum Amount of Grain Through Commodity Exchange”. A single resolution was adopted on both reports incorporating Lenin’s proposals.
