Sit Down or Stand Down

No one should be paid either salary or expenses as an MP until taking their seat, and if anyone has not done so by a decent period after election, then that seat should be declared vacant, with the non-attending ex-MP disqualified from contesting the consequent by-election. There are only so many by-elections for which any local authority's taxpayers will permit it to pay.
