The Japanese government will work to establish a new nuclear safety agency following last March's nuclear disaster.

The Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano says the establishment of a new body is desirable, and that the new institute will be under the authority of the Ministry of the Environment.

The new agency will be charged with administering the removal of radioactive substances from contaminated soil around the crippled Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant, and other health services to residents living in the vicinity of nuclear power stations.

The state minister in charge of the nuclear crisis will release a draft initiative to outline the new institute. Officials say the new agency could be launched as early as next April.

Public trust in Japan's NISA has fallen following several highly publicized scandals.
