Transcript which afterwards (in 1929 and 1930) began to be carried out, namely : the class distribution of industrial goods in town and country; the limitation of the consumption of the better-situated sections of the population; the obtaining of supplementary finances from these same social groups. . . . On one occasion, I think it was in 1926/27, a supplementary import of raw materials for various branches of light industry was carried out. This inevitably resulted in a slowing down of the development of heavy industry. In 1928/29, according to the Five Year Plan, a price drop was to be carried out with regard to industrial products for mass consumption. Basing my arguments on the fact of the industrial commodity shortage I tried in my speech on the control figures of this year to secure a stabilisation of the prices of industrial commodities, and as a supplementary factor I pointed out that the prices for agricultural products had risen considerably. I deliberately refrained from mentioning those class measures which were adopted in this field in 1930, namely, to limit the drop in prices to goods sold through the workers' co-operatives. With regard to the prices for agricultural commodities, I insisted both in my economic reports and my speeches on the control figures that there should be a rise in prices as a basic factor to stimulate production and to strengthen the peasant market relations, whereby I ignored or objected to the Socialist methods of influencing agriculture, i.e., supply according to contracts, the collectivisation of the small and middle farms and the strengthening of the State and class influence against the kulak elements in the villages. With the excuse that it was necessary to supply the grain areas to a greater extent, insufficient supplies were sent to the raw-material and cattle-breeding areas, and the result of this was that the plans for the supply of the respective agricultural products were not carried out, and this also increased the difficulties both in the supply of industry with raw materials and in the supply of foodstuffs to the towns. The hindering and retarding of the class distribution of industrial commodities in the town and in the country which resulted from our sabotage work meant that the workers and the poor peasants were insufficiently supplied with these goods. This was the general character of the sabotage work." (Statement of February 20th, 1931.) SABOTAGE IN THE SUPREME ECONOMIC COUNCIL. The work of sabotage in the Supreme Economic Council was carried out by four members of the All-Union Bureau : Ginsburg, Stern (who has since died), Volkov and Sokolovsky. 56
