(p.181) Chapter Six Towards Island Self-Government 1958–81
Offshore Island Politics
Liverpool University Press

This chapter is concerned with the self-government of the Isle of Man during 1958 and 1981. During this period a successful constitutional campaign by members of the House (MHKs) was waged for a transfer of power within the Island, from the Lieutenant-Governor to Tynwald and within Tynwald to the elected chamber. This chapter deals with the transfers of authority and concerted attempts by Tynwald. It also reports a major review of the Island's relationship with the UK. The changing role of the Executive Council and its development is also examined. The chapter shows the combined impact of the constitutional reforms and political developments between 1958 and 1981, noting a significant shift of the pattern of Manx devolution.
