The Isle of Man is proposing to establish a new government body to oversee the care and preservation of its war memorials. The body will keep a record of all the war memorials located on the Isle and ensure that they are kept in good repair. It will not have any legal powers but the fact that it would have the support of the Council of Ministers will give it some influence.

Throughout the UK some local councils have recognised the importance of their war memorials but this is the first time a government body has been proposed. Will it or should it be the last?
