B,you wudnt be able to plaster it if you don't board it first,to save money you could tape and joint it witch is just filling the joins and you can then paint it.

The cheapest option is the seal the wall with pva then dot and dab the walls as suggested before tape and joint is cheapest but a skimmed wall will be a better Finnish thank you budd plastering .

Plasterboard wall using drywall adhesive. The cost for proper drylining versus skimming is negligible and skimming will give you a better and longer lasting finish. You will then be able to paint or paper the wall. If you dryline and tape and joint the wall, papering onto Plasterboard directly will be difficult to set right and impossible to remove without damaging the plasterboard in future. Approx price based on your size... £900 - £1100. All in
