Semi-rigid form of state control? (9)


I believe the answer is:


'state control?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'semi-rigid form' is the wordplay.
'form' indicates anagramming the letters.
'semirigid' is an anagram of 'DIRIGISME'.

'of' is the link.

(Another definition for dirigisme that I've seen is " State control of economy".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
