My question is to the Prime Minister. Is the Prime Minister aware of a newspaper article written by Sharri Markson, 'Scomo Dumps Mal As Envoy'. I quote:

It reports that the Prime Minister is 'done with' Malcolm Turnbull and won't ask him to represent Australia in the wake of his failure to help in Wentworth. Given that only this morning the Prime Minister said Malcolm Turnbull would represent the nation extremely well, is that report correct? Is the Prime Minister really ruling out— (Time expired)
