    under consideration

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    Australia takes strong stance over whaling issue – it has been the pressing issue under discussion recently.

    This is the question under consideration.

    under consideration = being thought about or discussed

    Thank you for your efforts.
