Mark Tami was returned again as MP for Alyn and Deeside at the 2005 general election.
He resigned his post as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Dawn Primarolo on 6 September 2006, due to the refusal by Tony Blair to name a date for stepping down as Prime Minister. He was joined by fellow Welsh MPs Ian Lucas and Wayne David in resignation.
During the MPs expenses scandal Tami was one of a number of MPs accused by the Daily Telegraph of over-claiming on council tax expenses for their second home. Tami "I will go back and calculate the exact level I have over-claimed in error and repay the sum involved"
Among his interests outside Parliament are football, antiques, cricket, fishing and shooting. He is a strong supporter of compulsory voting, is a former member of the TUC General Council and an active member of the Fabian Society.
