The development of petitioning during the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries is an important chapter in the UK Parliament's history. This period saw a broadening of the scope of the issues under consideration: cases of individuals seeking redress of grievance continued throughout but were increasingly supplemented by instances when the king was asked to consider matters of national significance. In this episode Jacob Rees-Mogg discusses this shift with Gwilym Dodd, Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, who specialises in politics, kingship and government in late medieval England.
