7: Part of a flight heading to Rome is evacuated earlier (5)
Riser = part of flight (of stairs!).
R(ome) IS E(arlie)R ; if so, "evacuated earlier" is really neat!!

Good solve, Denis. I liked that one, too. smile

The last one is a simple charade. The clue splits where you don't expect it to.

2. Be overly frugal and fail to report income partner's capital (5)
cheap?
cheat = fail to report income
p = partner's capital (capital letter = first letter)
...probably wrong; don't see anything indicating "t"
being replaced by "p"...
