Block British article (3)


I believe the answer is:


'block' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'british article' is the wordplay.
'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').
'article' becomes 'an' (indefinite article).

(Other definitions for ban that I've seen before include "'Forbid, prohibit (3)'" , "Embargo" , "Hungarian governor < to forbid" , "Censor or proscribe" , "outlaw" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
