Have a friend who has asked whether it is ok to tile over vinyl tiles.
From what I can understand they are the 1' square ones commonly used in the 60's with (i'm guessing) the bituminous adhesive.
Can you use a gritty primer or is it best to take them up?
If taken up I would obviously advise to scrape up as much as the adhesive as poss but will a gritty primer suffice?

Many thanks
