to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, this amendment has been approved.
