Here is my best explanation:

'study' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'country's article 50' is the subsidiary indication.

'country' becomes 'peru' (Peru is an example).

'article 50' becomes 'sal' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'peru'+'sal'='perusal'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for perusal that I've seen before include "Process of examination", "Thorough read-through", "Scanning, reading", "A casual read or study", "Careful reading", "Examination, survey", "Careful examination", "Scrutiny", "Reading, examination" and "Study or scrutiny".)
