                                                          Toshio Nishizawa
                                                                 President

Today, the "Supplement of the Interim Guidelines on Criteria for 
Determining Nuclear Damage Indemnification Coverage (Losses due to 
Voluntary Evacuation)" was adopted at the Council on Disputes concerning 
Atomic Damages Compensation.

We will take into serious consideration this supplement which includes the 
losses due to voluntary evacuation as one of the damages to be covered by 
our compensation. We will exercise our utmost effort to fairly compensate 
for those damages under the framework of the System of Compensation for 
Nuclear Damages.

Regarding the compensation for the damages referred to in the guidelines, 
given that the estimated number of target sufferers has increased almost 
ten-fold, it is expected that a considerable amount of time for 
preparation will be necessary.  In accordance with the instructions and 
support from the government and municipalities, we will prepare to start 
the compensation procedures as early as possible.
