Mr Lenihan's family insist Trichet did make that demand.

Mr Trichet said the first he learned about the €440bn bailout of six Irish lenders was through the media.

According to the Sunday Independent, the Banking Inquiry will now examine Mr Lenihan's telephone records to determine whether the call took place.
