Sample text

But it is possible that some of the collectors were ignorant as to the amounts that ought to have been allowed, and were afraid of being out of pocket should the allowances prove to have been less than the inhabitants had claimed. 41 The delegation of powers within the vill The second problem is the delegation of powers of collection by the collectors to the local officials or inhabitants. The commission required the collectors to summon the `prepositus' and two inhabitants and to charge them to levy the traditional sum due from the vill, iungentes eisdem quod pecuniam predictam per vnium vel duos homines de singulis villis et Burgis predictis magis sufficientes in forma predicta nemini in hac parcendo vt predictum est leuari et vobis liberari faciant indilate.

From an analysis of the bills granting subsidies in 1489 and 1497, a clear distinction can be made between the `body' of the bills, dealing with the levy of the subsidies, and a series of clauses which follow, concerned with laying conditions upon the size of the grant, with making certain exemptions, with clarifying assessment criteria and with improving the position of those who might be appointed collectors. Again in the development of the new form of the directly assessed subsidy in the acts of 1512 to 1515, those innovations which were designed to secure a greater efficiency in assessment and collection are to be found incorporated in the general corpus of administrative clauses, whilst those introduced to safeguard the collector and the taxpayer first appear at the end of the bills.

This should enable some estimate to be made of the degree to which parliamentary debate affected the final form in which the taxation bills were engrossed. But a numerical comparison of clauses involves several difficulties. First, some decision has to be taken as to what constitutes a `clause', for some `clauses' are short and deal with one matter only, whilst others are lengthy and contain several separate proposals. No uniform standard can be laid down; but an attempt has been made to keep the `clauses' as comparable as possible.
