Permission has been granted for a major film to be shot inside the Houses of Parliament, UK, for the first time.
Parts of “Suffragette”, which is expected to star Meryl Streep as the women's votes campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst, are to be filmed in the building.
The Administration Select Committee chairman Sir Alan Haselhurst said he had been persuaded by the film's subject matter and the need to raise money for the upkeep of Parliament.
When Streep played Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady in 2011, Manchester Town Hall doubled for parts of the Palace of Westminster.
The film is also expected to star Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Romola Garai and Ben Whishaw.
