Spanish lawmakers on Thursday defeated a decree that would deregulate the hiring of dockers at the county's ports, in a blow to conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's minority government.

The proposed reform, fiercely opposed by dockers who threatened to stage a nationwide strike that would hurt exports if it went ahead, was shot down with 175 votes against, 142 in favour and 33 abstentions.

It is the first major defeat for Rajoy's Popular Party, which has since October headed a minority government that has just 137 seats in the 350-seat lower house of parliament.
