Member, one's slow to pass law (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

legislate

Here is my best explanation:

'pass law' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'member one's slow' is the subsidiary indication.

'member' becomes 'leg' (leg is a kind of member**).

'one's' becomes 'is' ('I' can be a synonym of 'one').

'slow' becomes 'late' (I've seen this in other clues).

'leg'+'is'+'late'='legislate'

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for legislate that I've seen before include "Enact laws", "Pass laws", "Make or enact laws" and "Pass law".)
