Can anyone help with two answers I'm stuck on:

9D Father Ted gets the foreign annual check on car (6,6) (?E?M?T, ?O????) - first word PERMIT???

24A Frenchman to swamp Rose on TV (4,5) (?E??, ?A?S?)

Thanks!

Andrew: I'm not surprised that you have had a problem with this. So did I! It's not in Chambers or Encarta [which I normally find reliable] but the answer is THUNDERBUG.
It's another name for the thunderfly...

BTW

I'm thinking of BLOW and HORSE but they seem a bit obscure.

I have BOLT and FLASH for the two.

Bolt - in terms of eating fast (bolt or wolf down)

Flash - F for Fair plus LASH (as in hair)

May be wrong of course!

Many thanks. Your answers seem far more plausible than mine!
