The stand-off at the Manus Island detention centre prompted Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to issue a statement on Friday, calling on Mr Turnbull to accept the offer, describing it as not dissimilar to the USA deal.
Andrews, a former immigration minister, told Sky News he acknowledged there were concerns about such a deal, but said: "We should give consideration to what New Zealand is offering. We have put the people smugglers out of business, and we will keep them out of business".
