Back, sanction (7)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'back' is the first definition.
(back can mean to support or endorse)

'sanction' is the second definition.
(I know that endorse is a more specific form of the action guarantee)

(Other definitions for endorse that I've seen before include "Approve officially" , "Give one's approval to" , "Red ones (anag.)" , "No reeds (anag)" , "Approve of, sign on back as of cheque" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
