UPDATE (10.47am): The inquiry has been told that any discussion of the so-called 'Anglo Tapes' are off-limits. Chairman Ciaran Lynch cut off Fine Gael senator Michael D'Arcy when he tried to raise the tapes, saying any discussion could have a detrimental impact on possible criminal trials.

They will also be asked to explain the oversight of the prevailing risk culture, appropriateness of the bank guarantee and whether alternatives were examined.
