use a 6mm concrete fixing screw, 70mm long , no rawplug required.
Just drill a 6mm hole with your masonry drill, then using a Torx bit, put the drill in the slowest setting and slowly screw it in the wall.
No I doubt if there is any pipes or wires in the breasting, but you can hire or buy a detector, to be on the safe side.
