Scott Morrison is brain-dead.
Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull will lead Australia's delegation to the next Our Ocean Our Legacy conference in Bali next week.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he was unable to attend it so he asked Mr Turnbull to instead go to the October 29-30 event.
"It was the subject of our discussions when I met with the Indonesian president, President (Joko) Widodo," Mr Morrison told parliament on Tuesday.
"I did request the former prime minister to represent us at that conference, and he'll be there representing the policies of our government."
Mr Morrison said President Widodo appreciated Mr Turnbull's decision to go. The two leaders had a famously good relationship when they were both in power.
