With respect to the Government-owned rubber-producing facilities it shall be the duty of the Commission, and it is authorized in accordance with the provisions of this Act [sections 1941 to 1941y of this Appendix]
(1) to invite and receive proposals for the purchase of the facilities; to negotiate for their sale and make recommendations therefor to the Congress; to enter into appropriate contracts for their sale, which contracts shall be binding upon the Government and the prospective purchasers upon their execution subject only to the further provisions of this Act [said sections]; and in the performance of such contracts to execute and deliver such deeds or other instruments appropriate to effectively transfer to the purchaser thereof title to the facilities, no matter by what officer, agent, department, Government corporation, or instrumentality of the United States the same is held;

(d) Submission of disposal report to Attorney General
Before submission of its proposed disposal report to the Congress, as provided for in section 9 of this Act [section 1941g of this Appendix], the Commission shall submit it to the Attorney General, who shall within a reasonable time, in no event to exceed ninety days, after receiving such report, advise the Commission whether, in his opinion, the proposed disposition will violate the antitrust laws.
(e) Antitrust laws as unaffected
Nothing in this Act [sections 1941 to 1941y of this Appendix] shall impair, amend, or modify the antitrust laws or limit and prevent their application to persons who acquire property under the provisions of this Act [said sections].
