Aug 6 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 49 points lower at 6,056 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

* GSK: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved GlaxoSmithKline's GSK.L experimental treatment for a common form of blood cancer. HOMEBUILDING: Britain will set out proposals to speed up homebuilding by cutting red tape and opening up the sector to smaller firms, in a bid to address a long-term housing shortage. OIL: Oil prices were mostly flat, as a boost from lower-than-expected U.S. crude stocks that lifted the market to five-month highs in the previous session gave way to fuel demand concerns amid rising coronavirus infections. GOLD: Gold steadied after hitting a record high in the previous session as dismal U.S. jobs data hammered the dollar. EX-DIVS: BAE Systems BAES.L , Fresnillo FRES.L , Rio Tinto RIO.L and Unilever ULVR.L will trade without entitlement to its latest dividend pay-out on Thursday, trimming 8.4 points off the FTSE 100 according to Reuters calculations. The UK blue-chip index .FTSE gained 1.1% on Wednesday with a five-month high for crude prices lifting oil majors BP BP.L and Royal Dutch Shell RDSa.L . UK CORPORATE DIARY:
