A Proclamation

1. Whereas, pursuant to Section 7 of the Trade Agreements Extension Act of 1951 and in accordance with Article XIX of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (61 Stat. (pt. 5) A58; 8 U.S.T. (pt. 2) 1786), the President by Proclamation No. 3454 of March 19, 1962 (76 Stat. 1452), as modified by Proclamation No. 3458 of March 27, 1962 (76 Stat. 1457), proclaimed, effective after the close of business June 17, 1962, and until the President otherwise proclaimed, an increased duty on imports of certain carpets and rugs and other floor coverings;

2. Whereas, after compliance with the requirements of Section 102 of the Tariff Classification Act of 1962 (76 Stat. 73), the President by Proclamation No. 3548 of August 21, 1963 (77 Stat. 1017), proclaimed, effective on and after August 31, 1963, the Tariff Schedules of the United States, which reflected, with modifications, and, in effect, superseded, Proclamation No. 3454 by providing for the increased duty on imports of such floor coverings in item 922.50 in Subpart A of Part 2 of the Appendix to the Tariff Schedules of the United States;

3. Whereas the increased duty on imports of floor coverings provided for in item 922.50 will terminate at the close of October 11, 1967, in accordance with Section 351(c) (1) (B) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, unless extended under Section 351(c) (2) of that Act;

4. Whereas, in relation to the possible extension of such increased duty, I have received and taken into account the advice from the Tariff Commission and the advice of the Secretary of Commerce and Secretary of Labor in accordance with Section 351(c) (2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, recommendations of the Special Representative for Trade Negotiations in accordance with Sections 3 (b), 3(j), and 5(c) of Executive Order No. 11075 of January 15, 1963 (48 CFR 1.3 (b), 1.3(j), and 1.5 (c)), and advice of other interested agencies of the Government; and

5. Whereas, pursuant to Section 351 (c) (2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 and in accordance with Article XIX of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, I have determined that the extension, as herein proclaimed, of the increased duty on imports of floor coverings provided for in item 922.50 is necessary to prevent serious injury and is in the national interest:

Now, Therefore, I, Lyndon B. Johnson, President of the United States of America, acting under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the statutes, including Section 351(c) (2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, and in accordance with Article XIX of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, do proclaim that the increased rate of duty on imports of floor coverings provided for in item 922.50 in Subpart A of Part 2 of the Appendix to the Tariff Schedules of the United States is extended to articles entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the period beginning on October 12, 1967, and ending at the close of December 31, 1969, unless the President proclaims otherwise pursuant to Section 351(c) (1) or (2) of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this eleventh day of October in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and ninety-second.


LYNDON B. JOHNSON
