hello eleanormcn
Answer is, EATS (worries - eats at).
It is a down clue, take the 1st letter of SEAT and put it to the bottom (seat = chair, becomes eats)

How about 'misfield' for 1a? Cover is a fielding position in cricket and the spying business is MI's field.

Thank you so much, torvic and JimB. As I know nothing about cricket, I would never have got that one.

JimB, I keep a list next to the computer showing the colour of bananas and grass, and the name of the largest planet!
