The chroniclers of the time from whom Shakespeare borrowed, Hall and
Holinshed, devote much space to the parliamentary speeches on invading
France or, alternatively, dealing with Scotland, either of which
campaigns the churchmen preferred to the king's attempt to extract more
money from them.  The accounts can be read online at Penn's SCETI
collection; text is in blackletter but the page images are high resolution.

Hall's Chronicle (1550), Henry V chapter, fol. 3r & ff:

Holinshed's Chronicles (1587), Vol. 3 (History of England after the
Conquest), p. 545ff:
