Please see below a round up of this weekend’s newspapers: Queue to get into Luminar Luminar, the collapsed nightclub operator, has received a dozen expressions of interest for substantial parts of its estate. Bid interest has come from a range of firms, including Oakley Capital, the quoted investment fund that owns Time Out magazine, plus Sun European Partners and R Capital, the turnaround specialists. Hugh Osmond, the pubs and insurance entrepreneur, and Luminar founder Stephen Thomas are also said to be considering making offers for parts of the group. The Sunday Times Carluccio’s eyes international expansion Carluccio’s: A year after it’s £90m takeover by Landmark Group, of Dubai, the chain of Italian restaurants and delis is to open in China and other parts of the Far East. In an interview with the Times, chief executive Simon Kossoff said Carluccio’s is targeting further expansion at railway stations and airports, revealing that the outlet landside in Heathrow Terminal Five is not doing as well as he’d like. “We’d like to be landside. Until we do that, the retail element won’t fly.” The company is about to open its 57th site in Glasgow. The Times, Saturday Wetherspoon and lessee wrangle JD Wetherspoon is locked in a legal wrangle with a businessman who leased one of its pubs. Angad Paul has filed a writ in the High Court seeking to unwind the contract to lease the pub, formerly known as The Print Works, in Farringdon Road, central London. He planned to turn it into a nightclub but alleges he was assured there were no disputes affecting the property when the Metropolitan Police had asked the local council to review the licence. The Mail on Sunday Five Guys eyes UK debut Hamburger chain Five Guys is looking at opening in the UK in its first move outside North America. It is understood Five Guys will initially concentrate on the London region and wants to open at least 20 branches within its first year. Company bosses are believed to be heading to the capital to scout for potential locations later this month. A spokeswoman said the higher-end burger chain was “researching opportunities” in Britain but declined to comment further. Founded in 1986 by Janie and Jerry Murrell and their four sons, the eponymous “five guys”, the restaurant chain has built up a cult following in the US and Canada. It has grown rapidly in the last decade and has 750 outlets in North America. Sunday Express Center Parcs on the up A boom in staycations saw profits at Center Parcs soar last year. The company’s four holiday villages had occupancy rates of 96% as cash-strapped families stayed in this country. Pre-tax profits at the group, owned by Blackstone, the US buyout firm, reached £28.9m in the year to April 2011, up 17% on the previous year. Sales climbed 4% to £290.5m. Trade was boosted by charging higher prices for new tree-house accommodation and for refurbished guest villas across the four parks. To date, about half of Center Parcs’ villas have been upgraded, and the company hopes that improving the remainder will further boost sales. Work on a £200m fifth park, in Bedfordshire, starts next year. The Sunday Times I’d schooner have a pint Pubs have shunned two-thirds of a pint glasses meant to curb binge-drinking. Only four per cent of pub-goers have seen the ­Australian-style schooners on sale since their launch a month ago. And 77% had not noticed them anywhere, said the Campaign for Real Ale. Its online poll found 45% wanted more ­landlords to offer schooners and 43% did not. The campaign’s Jonathan Mail said: “It appears beer-­drinkers remain in two minds about the new measure.” The Sunday Mirror Tax breaks to aid UK buyouts overseas British companies seeking to buy foreign rivals are set for a huge boost next year when new rules will mean they will pay less corporation tax on the acquisitions. The rules will be a shot in the arm for ambitious firms and could reverse a trend that has seen some of Britain’s leading companies being taken over by overseas competitors. According to Revenue & Customs, exemptions contained in the Finance Bill 2012 will mean a corporation tax rate of 5.75% on profits from the acquired assets, instead of 23%. The Mail on Sunday Overseas workers to be fast-tracked The Government is poised to announce a raft of measures to make it easier for British employers to hire migrant workers – as long as they pay about £20,000 a year for the privilege. The UK Border Agency, which overseas immigration, plans to introduce a new “fast track” migrant worker scheme which will speed up the time it takes for companies to recruit foreign nationals, provided they buy the service. The “premium sponsor” system is set to be announced imminently as part of wider efforts by ministers to trim red tape for businesses, The Sunday Telegraph understands. Home Office officials are understood to have met several key players, including law firms, consultants and professional services companies, within the past few weeks to discuss the proposals. The scheme could see large businesses pay about £20,000 a year for the gold-standard service, while smaller businesses would pay about £8,000 a year, under a scheme thought to be called “SME+”. At present, any employer wishing to take on a worker from outside the European Union has to apply for sponsorship status from the UK Border Agency. The Sunday Telegraph Insolvency Service lets ‘serious’ cases go Cuts to the Government’s Insolvency Service are resulting in “serious” cases of director misconduct going unpunished, insolvency practitioners have warned, at a time when company failures have risen to an almost two-year high. Robert Burns, head of investigations at the Service, admitted two rounds of staff cuts have “taken [their] toll” and warned of a “longer term impact”. Around 18% of the organisation’s workforce has been cut, after a redundancy programme saw 470 staff leave in April. It also cut a number of its freelance investigators last year, while its investigations department took an 11pc budget cut. Mr Burns said the Insolvency Service has been forced to reduce investigations. “[The cuts] will have an impact on investigations, there’s no getting around that.” The Sunday Telegraph Chancellor to use bonds to boost jobs The Chancellor, George Osborne, is considering introducing "project-specific bonds" and reversing a widely criticised Labour tax policy in the Budget later this month. The coalition is looking to stimulate the flagging economy by boosting the country's infrastructure, and Mr Osborne has been canvassing industry leaders for ideas that would not increase government spending. At a meeting two weeks ago with bosses of leading infrastructure companies, the CBI and the Treasury body Infrastructure UK, he was deluged with proposals. It is understood that at least two of these ideas are likely to be introduced in either the Budget or the accompanying revised National Infrastructure Plan, which is updated from last year. Then, Infrastructure UK, which will have authored both versions of the report, said that the country needed £200bn of private investment in areas such as energy and transport infrastructure. The Independent on Sunday Why tourism may be the big loser at the Olympics London's Mayor promised the 2012 Olympics will be "Good for this city and for the tourist economy", but travel industry insiders are warning that the capital faces a slump in visitor numbers as both tourists and business travellers shun the capital. "After six years of hype, we will see two weeks of 'blip', as visitors stay away from London," said Jonathan Callow, managing director of Incentive World Travel. He has followed travellers' behaviour over the past five Olympiads, and predicts both tourist numbers and business travellers will stay away in droves, and hoteliers' expectations of cashing in on the event will prove inflated. Forty thousand hotel rooms are reserved for Locog, the organising committee for the Games. The Hilton Hotels website shows that, of the 22 properties classified as "London", only three have any availability, and none is within 15 miles of the city centre. The only Hilton rooms are in Watford, Cobham and Dartford Bridge, at £290 a night during the Olympics. Simon Dugan, director of sales for the business travel agency Ian Allan Travel, said: "Our advice to customers has been to avoid London if you possibly can, because it's going to cost a lot of money." The Independent, Saturday Festive lunches look lean as price of turkey soars Many of us could be loading up on sprouts and potatoes in lieu of an extra slice of turkey this Christmas, with heavy price rises making the festive dinner more expensive than ever. Large increases in the cost of grain to feed the birds have pushed the costs of fresh turkey products up by double-digit percentages in the past year, a survey by The Grocer magazine and has found. A Bernard Matthews extra large Golden Norfplk turkey from Tesco is now £5 more expensive than last year, up 16.7%. The Independent, Saturday Mixed picture on the High Street Marks & Spencer is set to disappoint next week as a host of retailers paint a mixed picture of the state of the High Street ahead of the crucial Christmas shopping period. Britain’s biggest clothing chain to front its winter TV advertising campaign, is expected to say margins have been squeezed after it was forced to introduce a series of promotions to keep shoppers from straying to rivals. Analysts suggest pre-tax profits for the half year will fall in line with expectations by 10.8 per cent to £311m on underlying sales down 0.9 per cent – a significant slowdown from 1.7 per cent growth seen in the 13 weeks to 2 July. The Daily Mail, Saturday No discount in the share price in dramatic debut for Groupon Groupon shares surged more than 50% on their debut in New York, in the biggest flotation by a US internet company since Google. The world's biggest online coupon company on Thursday night sold shares at $20, higher than the $16 to $18 range Groupon had set out and raising a larger-than-forecast $700m. Analysts had forecast that the shares would perform strongly on their first day because Groupon had only sold less than 5% of the company. Groupon's initial public offering has been one of the most highly anticipated and controversial this year. A summer of turmoil on stock markets meant that initial hopes of a valuation of about $25bn (£15.6bn) proved out of reach. The Telegraph, Saturday
