Chichester had in 1610 and 1611 invited the nobility at large to suggest legislation which might be considered in the coming parliament. But he flatly rejected the contention, that they formed part of the council referred to in Poynings' law. Six catholic lords then stated their grievances in a letter to the king. After parliament met the catholics again complained to the king. Their complaints were investigated and as a result the elections for eleven boroughs (eight of which had been created since parliament was summoned) were annulled.
