The increase was the second-largest of the post-war period, ex- ceeded only by the 23- percent rise in 1973. Fixed-term deposits, offering the highest rates of interest, grew at a pace almost double the growth of personal savings deposits, the CBA said. billion, these were up nearly 12 per cent. Personal non- chequing deposits, with somewhat lower inter- est rates, rose more than 23 per cent to billion. Since 1964, personal savings deposits at the chartered banks, the country's major savings institutions through almost branches, had more than tripled. Tradesmen training required PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) British Columbia's construction industry will have to train or import more than tradesmen during the next six years, says a Canada Manpower economist. Linda Farris said industry, labor and government will have to work in close co- operation to avoid future shor- tages of tradesmen similar to those that occurred during the two years. She said between 1970 and 1974 the number of workers in the in- dustry increased to from Mrs. Farris was speaking to the opening session of the Northern B.C. Construction Association's annual conven- tion. She said she was making her prediction on the basis of results gained by a Canada Manpower occupational forecasting program that gives the demands for man- power in each of 500 oc- cupations in 69 industries in each province. She said the construction in- dustry should begin to boom in 1976 and the number of workers in the industry will grow at 2.5 per cent a year through 1980. The industry employs about 10 per cent of the province's workers. Mrs. Farris said the survey shows that the province's top five occupations for largest growth in new jobs in 1980 will be secretaries, sales and com- mercial supervisors, book keepers, janitors and sales clerks. Copper mine production to be reduced VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) Gibraltar Mines Ltd. announc- ed today that it will reduce production of copper concentrate by at least 15 per cent of 1974 levels commenc- ing Feb. 1. A company news release said some layoffs of operating personnel-will result from the reductions in production. The release said the reduc- tion is the result of a downturn in copper demand and a decrease in prices to about 55 cents a pound. It said reduc- tion in demand has resulted in a build-up of inventories at all levels and further reductions in copper production may be necessary before a balance between supply and demand is restored. The Gibraltar mine is located 40 miles northeast of Williams Lake in British Columbia's interior region.
