Plaster on top of lining paper

I have recently had a flood. The drying company to 3 foot of plaster of the top of some walls to dry out the brick work. The builders have started plastering the wall and feathered in on top the lining paper that is still on the remainder of wall. Is this right or should the lining paper be removed ?

The paper should be removed as when it gets damp does not allow the plaster to set properly

Lining paper in most cases (99%) should be taken off the wall.
Plastering over lining paper may cause plaster to come down in future or will make plaster hollow and easy to crack.

the paper should be removed first cause after will blow up and will look bad specially after paint.
So better to take it off!

I would never personally plaster over a surface that's not 100% solid,if your lining paper becomes unstuck that could cause the plaster to fail

You should always remove the paper. The plaster will not take at all.
Also did the builder bond the walls first before plastering.
Or was it on new boards ?

Hi I would have insisted the paper removed before the plastering was started as the damp plaster could lift paper and create bubbles were paper lifts but that's might be just me hope this helps Danny.
