Plaasterboard or wood lath

I have stripped the window bay of an old victorian house down to the brickwork.
Above the window is framing made of 4x2's which was covered with wood lath and rendered over.
Can plasterboard be used or do I use new wood lath?

You use new wooden lath again if the old lath is rotten and you can even insulate it before you render it again.

You could do either in my opinion and experience. If you wish to strip the wood lath away, then plasterboard the framing or get a plasterer to re-plaster the lath.
