That is not what he is saying.

It is not immediately obvious if a claim is spurious or not. He is suggesting hedging against such a possibility by having members remain in parliament until claims are verified. Not doing so would incentivise members bringing spurious claims against opposing members for short term tactical advantages of having them out of parliament, a particularly acute threat in a minority government.
