The concluding chapter looks at the changes to be seen in the parliaments of 1621 and 1624, compared with the earlier assemblies of the reign. It argues that the central issues had changed, with the Union project now abandoned and the issue of finance much less pressing as a result of the king's improved circumstances. During these two parliaments foreign policy was the central issue; but divisions were much less clearly drawn than in previous parliaments and in these circumstances the links between courtiers and councillors in the Lords and their clients in the Commons became much more significant. It also provides an assessment of James's changing approach to kingship and explains the relatively low importance which parliamentary diarists attached to the passage of routine bills. It concludes by again highlighting the problems caused by low taxation.
