We show that the so-called permanent quantum Hall states are formed by the integer quantum Hall effects on the Haldane-Rezayi quantum Hall state. Novel conformal field theory description along with this picture is deduced. The odd denominator plateaux observed around $\nu=5/2$ are the permanent states if the $\nu=5/2$ plateau is the Haldane-Rezayi state. We point out that there is no such hierarchy on other candidate states for $\nu=5/2$. We propose experiments to test our prediction.
