Doctor S Cooper: "I'm accepting money for accommodation" (10)


I believe the answer is:


'accommodation' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'doctor s cooper i'm accepting money' is the wordplay.
'doctor' indicates anagramming the letters.
'accepting' is an insertion indicator.
'money' becomes 'm' (abbreviation in economics).
'scooperim' anagrammed gives 'copromise'.
'copromise' enclosing 'm' is 'COMPROMISE'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for compromise that I've seen before include "Middle course" , "Trade-off" , "Settlement" , "accommodation" , "Give-and-take" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
