From the Paper:

"Cromwell had served as an aid to Wolsey, and had learned from Wolsey matters of state and church. Cromwell helped Henry VIII find a way to ignore the Collectanea. Cromwell proposed that the king seek a dissolution of marriage from an English court, through the Parliamentary authority. This was not the solution that Henry immediately accepted, because others among his inner circle, Norfolk and Suffolk among them, hoped to do it through the Church, and believed that they could exact pressure on the Church of England to make that happen."
