A one-day general strike in Spain on Wednesday over labour market reforms and government austerity measures had a "limited effect", Labour Minister Celestino Corbacho said.

"The strike has had an uneven following and a limited effect," he told a news conference.

While "practically 100 percent" of the nation's auto workers took part in the work stoppage, only three percent of hotel workers missed work, he said.
