‘Mind went blank’ in in­ter­view

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

SHEILA Scott ad­mit­ted her “mind went blank” in a BBC ra­dio in­ter­view on Tues­day when she was quizzed about the coun­cil’s child poverty plan.

She seemed un­sure as to what stage the coun­cil’s plan was at and why one had not been im­ple­mented sooner, but said she re­mem­bered the de- tails when the in­ter­view ended.

She said: “I thought I was go­ing to talk about child poverty but it was about a char­ity’s an­nounce­ment about whether some lo­cal au­thor­i­ties had adopted a strat­egy.

“I’m re­ally not happy with my­self as my mind went com­pletely blank.”
