This chapter discusses the period from the outbreak of war in 1939 to Parliament's Isle of Man Act in 1958. This period saw a major devolution of power to the Island and a great expansion in the role of the state. This chapter also explores the detail of the proposed devolution of the UK Treasury's powers in the Isle of Man. It examines the three general elections of 1946, 1951 and 1956 on the Island. Social security policy between 1939 and 1958 is explained. During this time there was a revolutionary shift of the economy of the Island. Furthermore, the chapter reviews the Manx budgetary policy from 1939 to 1958.
