Yn disgwyl am adolygiad mewnol gan London School of Economics o'u triniaeth o'r cais hwn.

Dear London School of Economics,

I have carefully studied a part of your 'LSE people' section on your website and communicated with your Information and Records Manager. Right now I get a firm conclusion -- Miss Tsai Ing-wen ( Till this moment she has not married yet. ) has never received a PhD degree from the School. Your confirmation of this would surely be appreciated.

First I have checked the information about Yu Kuo-Hwa in 'LSE people' with the Manager of LSE. It is accurately right:
Yu Kuo-Hwa (1914-2000)
Composition fee student 1947-1949
Premier 1984-1989

Then while moving down to the next person it says:
Tsai Ing-wen (b.1956)
PhD Law 1984
Vice-premier 2006-2007
President 2016-

By comparing with each other I have to believe that Miss Tsai Ing-wen has never received a PhD degree from the School.

An LSE's clear confirmation for this conclusion is highly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Luo Lao

Dear London School of Economics,

I am writing to request an internal review of London School of Economics's handling of my FOI request 'A prove by LSE: Miss Tsai Ing-wen has never received a PhD degree from the School.'.

To Rachael Maguire

Please answer me with the same kind of reply to Tsai Ing-wen as to Yu Kuo-Hwa. They have same kind of information blocks in https://www.lse.ac.uk/about-lse/lse-people.
As your ref. please see the following:
Dear Luo Lao,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act, please find below the School's response.

Neither LSE nor, as far as we can see, Yu Kuo-Hwa ever claimed that he had
received a doctorate/PhD degree from the School. I can however confirm
that he received the following:

Mr Yu Kuo-Hwa (Deceased)
Rec Type Alum (1949 Anthropology)
Degree COMP 1949 Anthropology

School: Anthropology
Degree: Composition Fee (that is, paid tuition)
Level: Taught Grad (usually Masters, we are checking to see if we have any
information that states it was not a Masters degree)
Start: 1947
Stop: 1949

Distinguished Alumus/a Award - LSE Awards (LSEAW)
Date: 01 /06 /1993

contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary,

WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to
you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information
Commissioner's Office [1]http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the
internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.
