Spain has set out its austerity budget for 2013, with new spending cuts but protection for pensions, amid a shrinking economy and 25% unemployment.
Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria called it "a crisis budget designed to exit the crisis".
The new programme of savings, tax rises and structural reforms will be overseen by an new budget authority.
