Child abuse at Kincora boys home must be investigated by an independent inquiry set up by Westminster into VIP paedophile rings after the general election, Alliance and the DUP have said.
The calls follow revelations in the Belfast Telegraph and later on Channel 4 News by Richard Kerr, a former resident in the notorious east Belfast boys home, that he was trafficked to London to be abused by senior figures.
The current plan is to deal with allegations of sexual abuse at Kincora at Sir Anthony Hart's inquiry into Historical Institutional Abuse in Banbridge.
But there are growing calls urging the claims to be dealt with by a more powerful inquiry into abuse in England and Wales headed by New Zealand High Court judge, Justice Lowell Goddard.
So far, Home Secretary Theresa May has refused to incorporate Kincora into the wider inquiry into VIP paedophile rings.
However, East Belfast MP Naomi Long told the Guardian: "I believe a new home secretary after the general election should even now include the Kincora scandal into the wider Westminster paedophile inquiry."
The DUP also supports an inquiry in England.
"The disclosure by Richard Kerr that he was taken to London, along with two others, and was abused by persons he described as 'very powerful people' needs to be fully investigated," said Robin Newton, an East Belfast MLA and Policing Board member.
He added that "the recently announced inquiry chair Dame Lowell Goddard, if the inquiry is to credible, must interview Richard Kerr".
"It is time for all of Kincora's dark secrets to be out in the open," he said.
