SOCIAL HINTS
------------
SHAKING HANDS IS THE CUSTOMARY GREETING WHEN INTRODUCED
TO SOMEONE FOR THE FIRST TIME. SOCIAL LIFE IN THE
UNITED KINGDOM IS INFORMAL AND CASUAL WEAR IS RECOMMENDED.
IN SOME RESTAURANTS YOU MAY BE EXPECTED TO WEAR A JACKET
AND TIE. TOASTS AT FORMAL DINNERS ARE AN OCCASION FOR A
SPEECH. SMOKING BEFORE THIS TOAST IS FROWNED UPON, BUT
IS OFTEN IGNORED. ALCOHOL IS READILY AVAILABLE & SMOKING
IS ACCEPTABLE, WITH RESTRICTIONS IN SOME PUBLIC AREAS.

BUSINESS HINTS
--------------
BUSINESS IS CONDUCTED IN A SOMEWHAT FORMAL MANNER
AND BUSINESS SUITS OR SMART ATTIRE SHOULD BE WORN.
IT IS WISE TO MAKE APPOINTMENTS IN ADVANCE AND NEVER
TO ARRIVE WITHOUT ONE. BRITISH BUSINESS MEN LIKE TO
WORK ON A FIRST NAME BASIS AND THIS MAY COME FAIRLY
EARLY IN THE MEETING. IT IS UNUSUAL FOR THE BRITISH
BUSINESS MAN TO RETURN HOME FOR LUNCH.
