An online petition calling for a national inquiry into historic sex abuse allegations in Parliament has gathered over 77,000 signatures.
The petition, launched by Tom Watson, MP for West Bromwich East in the West Midlands, said if an inquiry does go ahead it must be equipped with the necessary powers to properly delve into the allegations.
He added: "Having talked to a number of survivors and retired child protection specialists I know one thing: if this new inquiry is not given the power to obtain all documents it wants to see, then it won't get anywhere."
The Baroness says she did not consider the "difficulties" caused by her background and family connections to the child sex abuse inquiry.
Questions have been raised of former High Court judge Baroness Butler-Sloss since her appointment last week.
22 police officers are now assigned to Operation Fernbridge - the probe into claims of a Westminster cover-up of sex child abuse.
