Several hopes for the Government's plasterboard taskforce.

Building and Construction Minister Megan Woods has set up the group to troubleshoot supply shortages.

Commercial construction company Naylor Love Chief Executive Rick Herd is one of the taskforce members.

He told Mike Hosking hopefully the Government's assistance will educate the construction sector on what options are out there now - such as what can be used as a substitute for Gib.

Herd says then in the longer term, looking at how to get imported products that aren't currently available, certified to the point they can be used in the future.
