Transcript lists." Proletarian self-criticism is developing, the mobilisation of forces is proceeding, and confidence in the successful achievement of the objectives laid down is growing. Experience has shown that the first months of the new economic year are always the most difficult in the execution of the economic plan. Numerous delays in confirming programmes of production in central offices begin to take effect. Lack of capacity to adapt oneself quickly to the new problems arising in the districts also makes itself felt. In spite of all this, judging from the past, the plan will be carried out. Last year the leeway in the first quarter of the plan was even greater, and yet the programme for the year was not only carried out but surpassed—by an increase of 24 per cent, instead of 22 per cent. This year the production programme is more than half as large again as that provided for the second year under the Five Years' Plan ; and still the Party considers it practicable and obligatory. In its manifesto of January 25th, the Central Committee calls for the economic plan to be not only carried out but surpassed. And we are certain that this appeal will meet with a response in practice. In order to give you a picture of the state of affairs in our industry, I will quote one more fact. Under the Five Years' Plan, capital expenditure for this year was fixed at 2,265 million roubles (^"226 million). But the actual plan of capital expenditure exceeds this estimate by more than 50 per cent., and has already reached 3,664 million roubles (^366 million). Quite recently this figure, too, has been increased, and probably the whole sum of capital expenditure this year, apart from electrical construction, will be somewhere near four milliard roubles (^400 million). Returning to the question of the carrying out of the plan, I believe it is essential to emphasise that the main difficulty is to carry out the task of reducing the costs of industrial production while improving its quality. Instead of the reduction of n per cent, provided for in the first quarter, we have a reduction of only 4 per cent. : a very considerable discrepancy. Here, in the opinion of the Party, is the principal task arising under the industrial and financial plan. The fulfilment of this task is bound up first and foremost with an increase in the productivity of labour. At this point I must deal with several questions concerning the position of the working class. The increasing of the productivity of labour in industry and throughout the socialised sector of our economy is bound to claim our undivided attention. Last year the plan provided for an increase in labour productivity of 16 per cent. The task was fulfilled. This year we have accepted provisions for a further 8
