Code of Fair Competition for the Nottingham Lace Curtain Indus-
try, held in Room 2066 of the Department of Commerce Building

welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair compet-
itive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required) by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural- products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation

tion (b) of Section 10 thereof.

said Amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not oper-
ate to discriminate against them.

For the above reasons this Amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
