From the Paper:

"Until the Middle Ages, Britain was a feudal kingdom that gradually transformed into a strong centralized monarchy. The monarchy came into its own in the middle ages and the monarchs felt secure enough in their position to seek the advice of their subjects in matters of the state. This resulted in the formation of the great councils that initially consisted of members of the nobility and church leaders. In the meetings of the great councils, the monarchs sought advice, exchanged information, and gathered petitions. (Kishlansky). These councils were the precursor of the present day parliament in Britain, the all-powerful legislative and executive body."
