He insisted the EU had made unfair demands to "exert leverage" in Brexit trade talks, including threats to block food exports, and said the Internal Markets bill would prevent European negotiators from taking an "extreme and unreasonable" stance on the withdrawal agreement.
"Let's just get this straight for a minute, because I think it is important to take a step back, what the Prime Minister is coming to the House to tell us today is that his flagship achievement, the deal he told us was a triumph, the deal he said, as I said, was "oven-ready", the deal which he fought and won the general election is now contradictory and ambiguous", he said, standing in front of Johnson.
The legislation also sparked angry debate in London, reminiscent of the years of bitter political battles that followed the 2016 shock referendum vote to leave the EU.

The bill is created to enable goods and services to flow freely across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland when the United Kingdom leaves the EU's single market and customs union on January 1 at the end of the current transition period.
He added: "This is his deal".
The EU has ramped up preparations for a no-deal Brexit, which would be chaotic for business, markets and almost one trillion USA dollars in annual trade. This is his deal, it's his mess, it's his failure.
One of Johnson's special envoys, MP Rehman Chishti, earlier quit over the bill - and more trouble could be ahead.
Although MPs on Monday defeated a Labour attempt to try to kill the bill, amendments have already been proposed for debate during four days of detailed scrutiny starting Tuesday. I'll very happily give way to him.
