A panel discussion on communes was held on 25 August 1959 in Peiping for a group of Japanese jurists visiting China. Wang Lu, Director of the Bureau of Agricultural producer Cooperatives, Seventh Staff Office of the State Council, made a report at the meeting. His report is considered important because he is one of the officials tin charge of the commune affairs and he succinctly explained the current problems confronting the communes. Because of lack of time his statement after Section Three was proportionally shorter. It seems to us that the analysis of various contradictions arising out of the establishment of communes is receiving major attention. Since he spoke without a prepared text, there were repetitions on a number of points raised, but we are presenting his statement in full. Although it was called a panel discussion, there was no question period. After the meeting, we could manage to get the explanation that the frequently used term, stipulations of law, refers to the laws and regulations passed by the State Council and the resolutions and instructions of the Communist party. We have also learned that his statement covers changes and developments since the Wuhan Conference. Two days after we heard Wang Lus report, we read an official bullet ion concerning the Eighth All China Congress.
