It should be made the chief task of the All-Russia Conference in May to prepare and collect material on the question of
1) closer contact between the Party organisations and the non-Party masses.
2) drawing non-Party employees into the work more widely and systematically.
3) reorganising the Workers’ and Peasants’ Inspection for combating bureaucratism and red tape, improving the condition of the workers and peasants and drawing non-Party people into Soviet work.
On all these points the conference should not only collect and study all the material of practical experience, but work out practical proposals for the C.C.
Reports at the plenary meeting:
(α) 2-3 reports on the present (actual) work of the C.C. and the Party
(β) ditto on the plan of its reorganisation to meet the new tasks.
 Lenin’s remarks were made to Points 6 and 7 of the Central Committee’s work plan, drafted for the Tenth All-Russia Party Conference. On May 28, 1921, the conference approved the C.C.’a plan of work (see The C.P.S. U. in the Resolutions and Decisions of Its Congresses, Conferences and Plenary Meetings of the Central Committee, Part I, 1954, pp. 576-77)
 Lenin is referring to the All-Russia Conference of Managers of Organising and Instructor Departments Under the Gubernia Party Committees which was to be convened in May 1921 to discuss the immediate tasks of the Party’s organ,satioriil work. The conference did not take place.
