The debates during the session of 1610 can not compete in interest with those of such years as 1641 and 1689; but they have nevertheless, a peculiar importance of their own. From them may be dated the commencement of the great struggle between the King and the House of Commons. During the greater part of the first of the two sessions it seemed likely that the two great powers of our constitution might come at least to a temporary agreement. Before the second session was closed it was evident that all such hopes were at an end. The King (James I) demanded larger supplies than the Commons were willing to grant. The Commons asked that the exclusive power of taxation should remain in their hands, and that their grievances should be redressed; or, in other words, that whenever a difference arose between them and the Government on any important point, the Government and not the House of Commons should give way.
