This might be a double definition.

'seat' is the first definition.
(I know that seat can be written as chair)

(Other definitions for chair that I've seen before include "Single seat" , "Head of a university faculty or department" , "See 4" , "Top seat of committee" , "Academic position" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent, The Irish News and The Globe and Mail.
