Should it be pulled down?
By Ryan Morrison
There have been calls for Haut de la Garenne to be pulled down after the investigation is complete. Do you agree?
During Question Time on Tuesday 27 February Deputy Shona Pitman asked the Chief Minister if Haut de la Garenne should be demolished.
Senator Walker said that it was too early to start asking questions about the building and said that the States should be focusing on supporting the police, social services and authorities in bringing people to justice and protecting children of today.
Peter Hannaford, Chairman of the Manual Workers Joint Council at the Transport and General Workers Union, has claimed in the Jersey Evening Post that he was repeatedly raped and abused while at Haut de la Garenne and has said it should be pulled down.
What are your thoughts on this? Should Haut de la Garenne be pulled down or should the building remain?
Did you ever stay at the Youth Hostel? Will you go back again when it re-opens in April? If it were to be pulled down what should be put on the site instead?
