The chancellor for Lord Chathem, the man who took office over Rockingham, but once he was in office he was incapacitated by mental illness most the time, so most of the leadership fell to Charles. When he began in office he had to deal with a lot of grienences from the Greenville ministry, and now that the Stamp Act was repealed the colonists biggest grievence was with the Mutiny Act of 1765, which required the colonists to provide shelter and supplies for Bristish troops. The colonists didn't have a huge problem in doing so, but just with the fact that London was forcing them to, so the Massachusetts and New York assemblies went so far as to refuse. Townshed responed to this by disbanding the New York Assembly until they agreed to oblige by the Mutiny Act. He also imposed new taxes, known as the Townshed Duties, on various goods that were imported such as lead, paint, paper, and tea. He assumed that since these taxes were on "external" goods only that the colonists wouldn't object.
