NDP MPs’ salaries could be garnished if Commons Board of Internal Economy finds New Democrats broke Commons rules: Conservative MP

Conservative MPs, who claim the NDP is on the hook to repay the House of Commons up to $3-million for a satellite caucus office the New Democrats established in Montreal in 2011 and nearly two million flyers individual NDP MPs mass-mailed to other electoral districts, believe the money may be garnisheed from New Democrat MPs' salaries if a House governing board rules the spending broke Commons regulations.
