of that Industry.
This amendment is designed to accomplish the following purposes:
1. To permit members of the Fabricated Mietatl Products M~anufac-
turing and MIetal Fiinishing and Metal Coating Industry to operate
under the Code for that Industry with the assistance of additional
fair trade practice provisions, whiich ma~y be necessary to promoted
fair competition in. the several Subdivisions of the Industryr, with-
out, submission of Supplem~entary Codes.
2. To eliminate the necessity for organization of a supplementary
Code ,Authority for many of the Subdivisions of the Industry and
grant the Code Authority of the Fabricated M/etal Products Manu-
facturing and Metal Finishing and Mietal Coating Industry perm~is-
sion to delegfat~e to truly representative trade groups and subdivisions
within the Industryr power to administer within that group or sub-
division any of the provisions of the Code for the Fabricated Metal

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter;
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended arefn ht
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Rtecover~y Act including the removal of ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by shminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
st rictions of production (except as may be temp~ra rilyr reqluiredl),
by increasing the conisumiptio n of indlustrial andi a riultur~ial prod~--
uets through increasing~ purchasing pow,\er, by reduicing and~ relie~ving~
unemnploymrent., by improving~ standalrdsJ~ of laborl, and by otherwise
rehabLi litst in g industry.
(b) The Code ras amended comlplies in all respects; with thle per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tat~ion Subsection (a) of Se~ction 3, Subsection (a) of S~c~tioni 7
and Subsectionl (b) of Section 10 thereof.

eratin which was and is an indtustriall groups> trulyr repr~esentativeo

no inequitable restrictions on admniss~ion to memlb~r~ship therein
and have, applied for or consent to this am~end~ment.
(d) Thie amendment and th~e Code as amended are niot designed
to and will not permit monopolies or mlonopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment andc the Codle as amnended( are not desiiglrc
to and will nlot eliminate or oppress small enterprises an1d will not

(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
