Japan not considering support for Toshiba - government spokesman

TOKYO (Reuters) -- The Japanese government is not considering steps to support embattled conglomerate Toshiba Corp , Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Friday.

Toshiba this week missed submitting audited third-quarter earnings for a second time and said it would consider selling a majority stake in the Westinghouse nuclear unit at the centre of its financial troubles.

Sources have told Reuters that a fund backed by the government may invest as a minority stakeholder in Toshiba's memory chip business, which the company is looking to sell to raise cash.
