In that conflict with France, Britain incurred an enormous debt and looked to its American colonies to help pay for the war. Between andParliament issued a series of taxes on the colonies, including the Stamp Act ofthe Townshend Duties ofand the Tea Act of House of Lords, the upper chamber of Great Britain’s bicameral ated in the 11th century, when the Anglo-Saxon kings consulted witans (councils) composed of religious leaders and the monarch’s ministers, it emerged as a distinct element of Parliament in the 13th and 14th centuries.

Early in Parliament passed four "Coercive" or "Intolerable" Acts, which closed the port of Boston, altered the Massachusetts government, allowed troops to be billeted on civilians, and permitted trials of British officials to be heard in Nova Scotia or Britain, because they supposedly could not get a fair trial in the original colony.
