Heneage Finch declared himself outshone in eloquence, and Sir William Coventry told Pepys that he ought to be Speaker. Convinced of the need for a competent naval spokesman in the House he began to cultivate an interest at Harwich.
His connexion with the Duke of York, now an open Catholic, and his admiration for the splendours of the Roman mass and for the French Court put him on the defensive in the House of Commons, where his method of argument based on the relentless accumulation of facts won him few friends among the country gentlemen. He made over 70 speeches in the Cavalier Parliament, almost all on naval matters, but he was not an active committeeman, serving on 24 committees at most.
In the debate on the impeachment of Lord Arlington Sir Henry Bennet , he had to admit to supplying the French allies with anchors, and to defend the activities of the press gang. Meanwhile a petition against his election had been heard in committee, and on 6 Feb. On 22 Apr.

At the first general election of Pepys was responsible for managing the government interest in several constituencies. He offered himself for reelection at Castle Rising, where he had purchased a burgage, but the mayor did not reply to his letter, and at Portsmouth, where he had been a freeman since , he was ordered to resign his interest to Sir John Ernle. He sealed his fate with a courageous speech on 14 Apr. According to Roger Morrice he voted against the exclusion bill.
On the day after the division William Harbord reported to the House that he had sent Sir Anthony Deane to France in with naval secrets designed in some way to facilitate the Popish Plot, and the two men were ordered to be sent to the Tower.
