Transcript supply of the market with all sorts of fish products (half- salted and smoked products); " (c) In the Egg and Butter Department I deliberately put forward supply plans with too low figures, although. Centrosoyus and the co-operatives had large possibilities in. this respect. I carried out this disorganising activity at the instructions of the representative of the All-Union Bureau of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P., K. G.
