MADRID, June 24
MADRID, June 24 (Reuters) - Spain's public deficit, excluding town halls, from January to April 2014 was 1.16 percent of gross domestic product, up from 0.67 percent to March, Treasury Ministry said on Tuesday.
That compared to a deficit of 1.43 percent of GDP in the same period a year earlier.
The government is aiming for an end-of-year deficit, including local administrations, of 5.5 percent after ending 2013 with a deficit of 6.6 percent of GDP, just short of a target of 6.5 percent. (Reporting by Paul Day; editing by Sarah Morris)
