So money is no problem

Industry minister eyes reserve fund use for plant



Japan's industry minister has pledged to work quickly on allocating public funds to prevent more radioactive water from leaking into the sea.

Toshimitsu Motegi said officials will study the possibility of using this year's reserve funds to deal with the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Motegi made the comments on Tuesday, the day after visiting the plant. Proposed measures include building an underground frozen soil wall to stop contaminated groundwater from leaking into the ocean.

Motegi called the issue urgent and said the government wants to tackle it quickly. He said officials will discuss the scale and other details of the budget with fiscal authorities so that the measures will not be delayed.
Motegi said the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, should do what it can to try to stop further leakage. But he said the government is taking full charge to move things forward in handling the leaks.
