» Cross Party Diet Members’ Alliance established for promotion of the Nuclear Accident Child Victims’ Law

On 22nd January, a cross party diet member’s alliance was established to promote The Nuclear Accident Child Victims’Law, formally known as “the law to develop policy to provide protection and support to victims, particularly children, of the Tokyo Electric Power nuclear accident”.

As of January 24th, 77 diet members participate in the alliance from both houses of Representatives and Councilors.

The Nuclear Accident Child Victims’ law was passed by a vote in the Lower House plenary session on June 21, 2012 and came into force on June 27th.
The law clearly mentioned that the government is responsible for the nuclear accident and should give financial support for victims.

The alliance will seek formulation of the basic policy of the law, which was not realized under former administration.
