Transcript industrial centres. This year there is a definite speeding up provided for in the housing programme, which will render possible a small rise in the average housing space allotted. As for the food situation, we have a definite improvement in the central question, that of the bread supply. But the supply of dairy produce (butter, milk, meat) is still far from adequate to meet the growing demand. Due to the fact that the supply of this produce is partly dependent upon the private market, while the state and co-operative organisations have not taken a thorough grip of the situation, there are frequent rises in prices in this sphere, which of course have their effect upon the workers' wages. As a result, the increase in real wages is proceeding more slowly than was provided for in the plan. During last year it amounted to approximately 3 per cent., notwithstanding a much larger increase of money wages. This year it has been laid down that real wages must be increased not less than 12 per cent. In spite of a certain improvement which has to be registered, we are bound to admit that the increase is as yet much behind the plan. We have to remember, however, that during the whole period of the New Economic Policy there has not been a year in which wages of the workers in the U.S.S.R. have not risen. The policy of the Soviet Government is indissolubly bound up with the work of improving the material and cultural conditions of the workers, and this policy is firmly and unalterably maintained. The successes of the soviet state in developing industry and improving the position of the working classes have been made possible by a determined effort to overcome tremendous difficulties, particularly to overcome the most bitter resistance on the part of our class enemies. I need only refer to the numerous facts of counter-revolutionary sabotage on the part of former owners and bourgeois experts engaged in our industry. There is scarcely a single branch of national economy in which during the last two years counter-revolutionary organisations of saboteurs were not discovered. These organisations were brought to light both in heavy and in light industry, in transport and agriculture, in the banks and the co-operatives. The network of sabotage was most widespread in industry. Here counter-revolutionary experts, supported by white emigrants and foreign capital, undermined our constructive work. There have even been individual cases of sabotage by workers, amongst whom elements alien to the proletariat had penetrated. Sabotage increased particularly during the last three or four years, special attention being paid to the war industries. The organisations of sabotage varied their tactics according to the special features of the different stages of development of our economy. From 1918 onwards they went through three stages. 10
