Johnstones acrylic durable... is their primer essential?

We have heard great reviews on this stuff for kitchens, etc:

We've just had our church kitchen re-skimmed in a full refit and normally I would 'prime' the bare plaster with watered down cheap white paint and then paint on top. Johnstone's say we should use their special primer but then everyone says you should use their special primer... just wasn't sure with the paint being acrylic if we should listen in this case?
Don't mind buying it but wanted to check as I have nearly 10L of matt white emulsion in an open tub and if I can use that up, great.
