UK House of Commons to welcome Meryl Streep

LONDON--Britain's House of Commons will open its doors to a commercial film crew for the first time next month in a bid to raise cash, welcoming Meryl Streep for a movie about the suffragettes, officials said Tuesday.

The Oscar-winning actress is appearing alongside Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter in the British film “Suffragette,” the fictional tale of one woman's fight for the right to vote.

Parliamentary authorities decided last year to try to boost their coffers by renting out parts of the Palace of Westminster when lawmakers are not sitting, although crews will not be allowed to film in the debating chamber.
