REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on the
modification of said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by including and
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue. re-
striction of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified 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
Said modification is accordingly approved.
