Crossword Genius

I object to a certain action (7)


I believe the answer is:


'action' is the definition.
(measure is a kind of action)

'i object to a certain' is the wordplay.
'i object' becomes 'me'.
'certain' becomes 'sure' (synonyms).

(Other definitions for measure that I've seen before include "Portion" , "of specified size" , "Determine the size of" , "See 1" , "bar of music" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish News.
