p245: "The King who had stammered and gasped when he saw his barons sitting in Parliament in their armor had double reason to pause at the spectacle of Oxford in arms, and he met their demands in a mood which could only be described as submissive. This session, which later was geiven erroneously the title of the Mad Parliament, could not have been held at Beaumont palace, which lacked the space for such numbers. More likely the magnates assembled in Oxford Castle, where the keep and the square lower tower afforded plenty of room. One chronicle places the meeting in the monastery of the Dominicans.
"The principles which had been approved atLondon were expeditiously applied to a reorganization of the machinery of state. A committee of twenty-four, half chosen by the King, half by the magnates, was appointed to handle the details of the operation. Henry's nominees included his threee half brothers, John Mansel, and the leading peers who were standing by him. The baronial half included Gloucester, Simon de Montfort, Roger Bigod, adn Walter Cantilupe, the Bishop of Worcester. This body set to work at once.
"Out of their deliberations came the creation of two new administrative bodies. The first was a permanent council of fifteen men who would sit continuously with the King and advise him on all points of policy and who would have moreover, the power to restrain him; a gentle method of applying the right of veto. The second was a body of twentyfour to deal specifically with the difficulties of the King andfind ways of meeting them. It was ordained that three sessions of Parliament were to be heldeach year at spcified times for the discussion of state problems. The filling of the responsible offices under the King was to be a function of the council of fifteen.
"It will be seen that these regulations, which came to be called the Provisions of Oxford, were more than a curb of the King's power. Cloak their intent in the most careful and polite of phrase and they still constitute a transfer of final authority to the council of fifteen. That Henry agreed to terms as humiliating as this can be accepted as evidence of the panic into which he had been thrown by his recent mistakes and failures. Early in August he published his consent, after taking a solemn oath to abide by the Provisions, a step which was demandedalso of Lord Edward."
