UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Aug. 5



Aug 5 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 7 points lower on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

* JOHN LEWIS: Britain's government named almost 200 businesses which breached minimum wage laws between 2011 and 2018, with the department store and supermarket chain the John Lewis Partnership heading the list.

* CAR SALES: British new car sales fell by around an annual 30% to their lowest July level since 1998 as the 'pingdemic' of people self-isolating alongside supply shortages hit demand, according to preliminary data from an industry body.

* INVESTMENT: Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged British pension fund managers to put more of their clients' money into illiquid long-term investments in infrastructure and unlisted companies.

* ROLLS-ROYCE: Britain's Rolls-Royce RR.L is in exclusive talks with a consortium led by U.S. private equity firm Bain Capital on a potential sale of its Spain-based ITP Aero unit, the engine maker said on Wednesday.

* VACCINATION: Britain will offer all 16- and 17-year-olds their first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, its vaccine advisers said on Wednesday.

* ENTAIN: Shares of Entain ENT.L , which rejected a takeover offer from MGM Resorts MGM.N this year, jumped to a record high on Wednesday after a $4.4 billion asset sale by the U.S. casino group prompted bets of a renewed bid for the British bookmaker.

* OIL: Oil prices rose, supported by tensions in the Middle East, but failed to recoup most of the previous day's losses after a surprise build in crude stockpiles in the United States, the world's top oil consumer.

* GOLD: Gold prices eased as the dollar held firm after remarks from a top U.S. Federal Reserve official signalled the possibility of bringing forward policy tightening.

* London's FTSE 100 rose on Wednesday, helped by heavyweight financial stocks and strong corporate earnings updates.
