The chapter opens with discussion of how Edward I's stance on appeals affected the constitutional position of Scotland at the opening of Balliol's reign. Examination of appeals brought from Scotland to English courts at the time shows that few Scots from mainland Scotland had recourse to English justice. John Balliol, called before the King's Bench to explain his failure to do justice in one case, appealed to the terms of the 1290 Treaty of Birgham but to no avail. The deterioration of the English position in Gascony lessened tension for the Scots, who established a council to take over government from Balliol, refused to provide troops for Edward in Gascony and made a treaty with Philip IV of France 1295.
