'''1856 — The Survey passed from the Department of Science and Art to the Education Department of the Privy Council (Board of Education from 1899)''' <ref>This is a generalization, the actual position is more complicated and some aspects are still unknown. The Privy Council may have been under the Board of Education from the beginning, but it is currently not possible to track the history of the Board of Education and the Council’s relationship to it. It was possibly mentioned in 1855 as Murchison was greatly annoyed at the new arrangement because he no longer had direct access to a Minister of State, the Privy Council being an inserted additional layer with the slightly renamed Science and Art Department below it, and the Survey below that.</ref>
