I am afraid setting Filter property for QueryableCollectionView is not currently supported. You should use the FilterDescriptors collection instead.
For example you can add a FilterDescriptor like so:
queryableView.FilterDescriptors.Add(new FilterDescriptor("Country", FilterOperator.IsEqualTo, "England"));
I hope this helps.
