(p.39) Chapter Three The Raglan Era 1902–19
Offshore Island Politics
Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyses the Raglan era from 1902 to 1919. The chapter specifically explores the governorship of Lord Raglan in the Isle of Man. His appointment as Lieutenant-Governor had co-occurred with the beginning of the campaign of House of Keys Constituency Boundaries for constitutional reform. This chapter offers an impetus to the cause of constitutional change. It also looks at Raglan's decision to resign. He immediately resigned after the end of the First World War as the Island was about to start a major programme of constitutional, electoral and social reform. From 1914 to 1919 the war led to radical change in the pattern of public spending. There was an increase in spending prior to the war and again by 1918/19.
