It would have sat in 1588 (Regnal Year 30), but Elizabeth delayed its opening to February 4, 1589 due to the crisis of the Spanish Armada. At least two acts address that experience. These include "An Act Against Imbeazelling of Armor, Habilliments of Warre, And Victuall" and "An Act Concerning Informers." Beale, A Bibliography of Early English Law Books S303.
