When is it ok to paint new plaster?

last month

Hi everyone, I keep hearing conflicting information regarding painting a freshly plastered wall.
Some people say as soon as the plaster goes light, which could be as soon as a couple of days. Then at the other end of the spectrum some people say 6 weeks! Plus a load of random in-between timeframes suggested by other people.
My plastering was finished at the weekend (Sep 18th), there's no heating in the house, but the weather has been warm (I'm in the South East of the UK).
Any ideas on when it is safe to paint it? Thanks guys.
