Some scepticism over the Government's latest move to tackle the plasterboard crisis.

Minister for Building and Construction Megan Woods has set up a taskforce to troubleshoot supply shortages.

Combined Building Supplies Co-Op Marketing Director Mike Blackburn says this is a problem that's been plaguing the industry for months now.

He told Tim Dower some suppliers have already been looking for solutions.

Blackburn says Bunnings has told him it has 150 containers of plasterboard coming in from Thailand and will continue to bring it in as fast as it can.
