"If the system recognises the MP correctly, then the MP will get paid for that month"

That's testing the wrong thing, though. False positives are a more problematic error than false negatives, and that's where facial recognition tends to do the worst. So the test shouldn't be if the MP is correctly recognized, it should be that it didn't incorrectly identify anyone else as that MP.
