London School of Economics (Education): ICO 18 May 2022

The complainant made a request for information relating to President Tsai Ing-wen’s Thesis. The LSE provided some information, it withheld some information under section 40(2) FOIA and confirmed that no further information was held. The Commissioner considers that section 40(2) FOIA was applied correctly to the withheld information and that the LSE was correct to confirm that no further information was held under section 1(1)(a) FOIA other than that which had been provided or withheld under section 40(2) FOIA. The LSE breached section 10 in the handling of this request as it did not provide a response within the statutory time for compliance. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken.
FOI 10: Complaint upheld FOI 40: Complaint not upheld
