British finance minister Jeremy Hunt said on Wednesday the UK needed to make sure it remained an attractive place to invest in the context of the subsidies available in the U.S. from its Inflation Reduction Act.

"This is $369 billion of subsidy and there are risks as a result of that and we need to mitigate against those risks. That doesn't necessarily mean matching subsidy for subsidy but it means making sure the overall package which means people choose to invest in the UK remains attractive," Hunt told parliament's Treasury Committee.
