This chapter provides a narrative of a parliamentary session dominated by the Crown's financial problems and the Commons’ failure to address them. It explores the extended discussion of a settlement over purveyance and the house's grudging attitude over subsidies, in spite of the general goodwill towards the king in the aftermath of the Gunpowder Plot. Parliament's failure to recognize the Crown's legitimate needs raised the question of whether these could best be addressed in a representative assembly.

Keywords:   purveyance, Gunpowder Plot, subsidy, 1606 Parliament, crown finance
