Chairman of the Soviet


According to a statement of the Commissar for Finance, obstacles are being put in the way of a complete inspection of the State Bank appointed by him and the control bodies. I direct that every facility be afforded for a complete and thoroughgoing inspection of the State Bank and assistance given to the inspectors. Please let me know by telegram that the inspectors have been given full opportunity to discharge their duties.[1]
