Tell senior churchman is losing power (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

relate

Here is my best explanation:

'tell' is the definition.

(relating is a kind of telling)

'senior churchman is losing power' is the subsidiary indication.

'senior churchman' becomes 'prelate' (I've seen this before).

'is losing' is a deletion indicator.

'power' becomes 'p'.

'prelate' with 'p' taken out is 'relate'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for relate that I've seen before include "Have to do with", "Give a report or show a connection", "link", "how to get on?", "Make a logical or causal connection", "Make a logical or casual connection", "Narrate or associate", "Tell in Tralee", "Connect in Tralee" and "Tell - the marriage guidance people".)
