Ask earnestly for new net rate (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

entreat

Here is my best explanation:

'ask earnestly for' is the definition.

(seen before)

'new net rate' is the subsidiary indication.

'new' is an anagram indicator.

'net'+'rate'='netrate'

'netrate' with letters rearranged gives 'entreat'.

(Other definitions for entreat that I've seen before include "petition", "Petition", "Beg earnestly, implore", "Request earnestly", "Beseech, beg for", "Will's pass", "Beseech, implore", "Earnestly ask", "Ask (someone) earnestly" and "Pray".)
