Lemma 100.17.7. Let $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y} \to \mathcal{Z}$ be morphisms of algebraic stacks. Assume $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Z}$ is locally of finite type and that $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ is representable by algebraic spaces, surjective, flat, and locally of finite presentation. Then $\mathcal{Y} \to \mathcal{Z}$ is locally of finite type.

Proof. Choose an algebraic space $W$ and a surjective smooth morphism $W \to \mathcal{Z}$. Choose an algebraic space $V$ and a surjective smooth morphism $V \to W \times _\mathcal {Z} \mathcal{Y}$. Set $U = V \times _\mathcal {Y} \mathcal{X}$ which is an algebraic space. We know that $U \to V$ is surjective, flat, and locally of finite presentation and that $U \to W$ is locally of finite type. Hence the lemma reduces to the case of morphisms of algebraic spaces. The case of morphisms of algebraic spaces is Descent on Spaces, Lemma 73.16.2. $\square$
