...postpone or carry on? (4,4)


I believe the answer is:

hold over

'postpone' is the definition.
('hold over' can be a synonym of 'postpone')

'carry on?' is the wordplay.
'carry' becomes 'hold' ('hold' can be a synonym of 'carry'**).
'on?' becomes 'over' (I've seen this before).
'hold'+'over'='HOLD OVER'

'or' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for hold over that I've seen before include "... postpone" , "influence on another" , "Defer action on" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
