Inexperienced regarding blocking information (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

green

Here is my best explanation:

'inexperienced' is the definition.

('green' can be similar in meaning to 'inexperienced')

'regarding blocking information' is the subsidiary indication.

'regarding' becomes 're'.

'blocking' is an insertion indicator.

'information' becomes 'gen' (gen is a kind of information**).

're' put within 'gen' is 'green'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for green that I've seen before include "Politician; fresh", "The colour of immaturity", "Raw - inexperienced", "bowlers here?", "conservationist", "It's for putting on - colour - inexperienced", "Permission to proceed", "Environmentally sound", "Putting area" and "Ecologically sound".)
