Evasive firm, untrustworthy ultimately (3)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'evasive' is the definition.

'firm untrustworthy ultimately' is the subsidiary indication.

'firm' becomes 'co'.

'ultimately' indicates one should take the final letters.

The final letter of 'untrustworthy' is 'y'.


This clue was last seen in The Times
