Can Zinsser Interior Perma White Matt go straight on to new plaster?

Will this cover damp pre emulsioning

Zinsser Interior Perma White won't cover damp before painting over with emulsion. The only way to get rid of the damp is to cure the root of the problem with a damp proofing course. If the root of the problem has already been cured, we recommend using Zinsser Coverstain to hide any staining.
