The Labour Party says that naming streets after service personnel killed in the line of duty would provide "a meaningful, lasting and respectful way to show the value we place on those who have served and been lost."
MPs Jim Murphy and Hilary Benn are writing to all of the local authorities in the country, to encourage them to adopt the Barking and Dagenham scheme.
They are suggesting the following process:
• The families of fallen personnel who lived in the Local Authority Area are be asked whether they would like a road or street named in memory of their loved one.
• In consultation with the family, the location and precise name of a road or street is decided on. Local residents in the street are also be consulted.
• The Council offers to organise an official opening ceremony of the street or road, to which other members of the local community, family and friends as well as service charities could be invited.
