   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the

liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and
the Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement
