The Paint Shed recommends

A great primer for bare plaster and as a sealer on chalky surfaces, it provides excellent resistance to alkali attack.

Johnstone's Trade Alkali Resisting Primer is a solvent-based primer and sealer for interior and exterior use on new or bare plaster, concrete, cement, render, or wood and metal surfaces. It is suitable for interior and exterior use, and provides exceptional resistance to alkali attack when used as a primer on unpainted surfaces, or as a sealer on powdery substrates. 

Applying Johnstone's Trade Alkali Resisting Primer
