#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: The i newspaper reports that the government is in talks with private healthcare operators in a bid to agree deals that would create 7,000 extra NHS beds in private hospitals: The government hopes it could help cut waiting lists and also avoid the need for any new lockdowns over the winter months by ensuring there are enough beds. But the new deals are expected to cost the taxpayer more than £2bn, and the firms allowed almost £200m in profits, the paper adds. NHS England said such deals with private firms are struck at the same cost as NHS services

BBC News: Staff:
Monday’s Daily Express calls for all of Britain’s Olympians to receive gongs, calling them heroes who lifted the nation’s spirits.
The Metro dedicates its front page to cyclist Jason Kenny, who became Britain’s most successful ever Olympian after winning his seventh gold medal. Kenny broke the record previously set by his former teammate Sir Chris Hoy who tweeted his congratulations, saying: “Well done mate, proud of you.”
The Daily Mail leads with comments by an unnamed senior minister, who says civil servants who refuse to return to the office should be paid less. The government’s guidance is that employees should make a gradual return to the office, but the Cabinet minister told the Mail it was unfair that people working from home should get the same benefits as those commuting in. “People who have been working from home aren’t paying their commuting costs so they have had a de-facto pay rise,” the minister said.
The same story features in the Times, which says there is a plan for a “big push” to get civil servants back in the office from next month. One government department – which did not want to be named “amid fears of a revolt” – is likely to order staff to work from the office at least three days a week from October, the paper says. Like the Mail, it quotes an unnamed cabinet minister who says: “People will find that those who get on in life are those who turn up to work.”
The Daily Mirror reports that nearly £100,000 was spent on two artworks for the walls of No 10. The paper says there is “fury” at the purchases, which were bought through the Government Art Collection fund – which buys artworks for display in government buildings – and which is “bolstered by taxpayers”. The Mirror describes it as extravagance, and says it comes as the government planned to cut benefits and public sector pay. A government spokesperson said “the majority of funding for acquisitions comes from philanthropic sources – not taxpayers’ money”.
Social mobility campaigner Sir Peter Lampl has said too many people in the UK are going to university, the Telegraph reports. He says it’s become a big problem for the country’s finances amid concern in government about all the young people taking out student loans which they might be unable to repay. Degree apprenticeships – where students work full-time while learning part-time – are now being pushed by the government.
The Guardian looks ahead to the publication of a major report into climate change science later today. It quotes scientists and environmentalists who warn that “urgent climate action was needed decades ago – now we’re almost out of time”. The report comes less than three months before UN climate change talks hosted in the UK – which the Guardian says “will determine the future course of life on earth”.
The top story for the Financial Times is on cigarette maker Philip Morris International, which has raised its bid to take over UK-based company Vectura, which makes inhalers. But the move by PMI has been criticised by anti-smoking campaigners who point out that Vectura’s medicines are used to help people with breathing problems. The FT adds that this is the latest in the “spate of recent raids by private equity firms on UK businesses”.
The Daily Star takes aim at the Met Office, after a meteorologist said the summer had overall been warmer and drier than usual. “These boffins are having a laugh,” the paper says. It quotes people on social media who have expressed their disbelief, saying: “This has been the most typically British summer since records began.”
According to the Guardian, scientists poised to release a landmark report on climate change will warn that recent fires and floods, seen around the world, are just a foretaste of what can be expected if global heating takes hold.
An American professor, Michael Mann, tells the paper the effects of climate change are no longer subtle: “We see them playing out in real time, in the form of weather disasters.”
A Greenpeace spokesman says that as the host of the UN climate talks, Britain must ensure world leaders sign up to policies that don’t just put the brakes on climate change – but “slam it into reverse”.
A government source tells the Daily Telegraph that today’s report should “focus minds” – and leaders should come to Glasgow with “ambitious proposals on coal, cars, and trees”.

The Sun says government insiders have tried to play down the claims that Boris Johnson threatened to demote the Chancellor Rishi Sunak, over a leaked letter.
A Whitehall source insists the prime minister’s comments were “all in jest” – but the paper suggests the pair are “at loggerheads” over spending.
A senior MP tells the Financial Times the PM doesn’t have the standing to move Mr Sunak.
“He couldn’t do it and that’s obvious,” the MP says, adding, in a reference to Sajid Javid’s resignation last year: “To lose one chancellor may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.”
ReutesThere have been reports of tensions between the prime minister and his chancellor
The Telegraph leads with a warning by a social mobility expert that too many young people are now going to university.
Sir Peter Lampl of the Sutton Trust says many graduates leave with “astronomical levels of debt” and often without skills wanted by employers.
The Times says the number of university applicants has risen by a tenth in a year – and highlights a call by the education secretary for middle class parents to open their minds to apprenticeships when their children receive their A-level results tomorrow.
Meanwhile, an unnamed cabinet minister tells the Daily Mail that civil servants who refuse to return to the office should be paid less than those already back at their desks because they’re not having to commute.
The Times says “a big push” to get officials back to the office is planned from next month.
But a trade union representing civil servants says the world of work has changed – and people who don’t realise that sound “like Luddites”.

Finally, “pure gold” declares the Mirror – one of a number of papers to picture the triumphant cyclists Laura and Jason Kenny, Britain’s most decorated male and female Olympians.
The Guardian quotes Team GB’s boss as saying their performance in Tokyo represents “the greatest achievement in British Olympic history” after the athletes matched the medal haul from London 2012.
For the Express, Team GB are the “heroes who lifted the nation”.
The Telegraph believes the decision to stage the Olympics during a pandemic paid off. It describes them as the “ghost games” – “eerily bereft of fans but salvaged by the stoicism of the hosts and the luminous talent of the athletes”.
The Times says Japan deserves “heartfelt thanks” having laid on “the best games possible in extraordinary circumstances”
