Fionnan Sheahan and Donal O'Donovan

THE Department of Finance's most senior civil servant John Moran is being asked to explain correspondence between him and two controversial British billionaires.

It has also been revealed the department is withholding a series of files on its secret role in the battle between tycoons David and Frederick Barclay and businessman Paddy McKillen.

Mr McKillen claims the department was engaged in an inappropriate level of contact with representatives of British developers the Barclay brothers.
