Hi pkum A 6mm drill for 5mm screws should be adequate. Drill a trial hole to determine the depth of the brickwork. Add the depth of the bracket and the depth of plaster plus 40mm will give you the length of screws needed. Use either a new or freshly sharpened masonry drill bit and you should be fine. Regards S
