Effect of one parliamentary bill introduced by member (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

impact

Here is my best explanation:

'effect' is the definition.

(impact is a kind of effect)

'one parliamentary bill introduced by member' is the subsidiary indication.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'parliamentary bill' becomes 'act'.

'introduced by' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'member' becomes 'mp'.

'act' put after 'mp' is 'mpact'.

'i'+'mpact'='impact'

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for impact that I've seen before include "Effect - collision", "Strong effect", "Force of blow or collision", "Forcible contact; marked influence", "Hit; effect", "Forceful contact between two objects", "The striking of one thing against another", "Result", "Effectiveness" and "Force of colllision or blow".)
