The previous owners had painted the walls with a sponge giving the effect in the picture. We are in the process of removing the wallpaper strip at the top but as you can see the paint is bubbling a peeling, can we just scrape, pva over this to seal then plaster? ImageImageImage

Shouldn't be necessary, scrape back wash down with hot water and sugar soap and a scotchbrite pad,(may need repeating)

assuming the wall/plaster is in good condition give it a coat of Zinsser peelstop and redecorate.

could be you have to sand down to remove all the water based paint.youve got to be careful not to liven up any remaining paint when you roll on the pva.
the first coat of pva is allowd to dry an the second allowed to go tacky before skiming..dilute the pva 50/50with water
