Informer provides material for insider trading (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'informer' is the first definition.
(snout can mean a police informant)

'material for insider trading' is the second definition.
(cigarettes or 'snouts' are traded inside prisons)

'provides' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for snout that I've seen before include "nose of pig" , "Tobacco -- hooter" , "Pig's nose" , "Schnozzle" , "Nose; tobacco (slang)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
