(3) If the judge reports that such trust, combination, association, or agreement exists, and it it appears to the governor in council that such disadvantage to the consumers is facilitated by the duties of customs imposed on a like article when imported, then the governor in council shall place such article on the free list or so reduce the duty on it as to give to the public the benefit of reasonable competition in such article.
