HUDDERSFIELD MP Barry Sheerman sparked shouts in the Commons after intervening in the debate over university top-up fees.
The Deputy Speaker was forced to intervene after Mr Sheerman attacked fellow Labour MP Ian Gibson over an amendment to a Bill in a bid to block the introduction of the fees.
Mr Sheerman, who chairs the Commons Education Select Committee, said: "The general criticism of your amendment has been that it's a wrecking amendment, because you are a bad loser. You lost on the second reading.
"Do you regard this criticism of it being a wrecking amendment, true or not?" he demanded, before being drowned out by angry shouts from Labour MPs.
Dr Gibson replied that he would treat the remark with the "disdain" it merited.
The Government defeated Labour rebels to win the crucial vote for proposed university tuition fees of up to £3,000.
The amendment, which would have kept fees to their current flat rate of £1,125, was defeated by 28 votes.
Mr Sheerman, Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford and Dewsbury MP Ann Taylor backed the Government.
Fellow Labour MPs Mike Wood (Batley and Spen) and Chris McCafferty (Calder Valley) were among the rebels.
Wakefield MP David Hinchliffe did not vote.
About 1,000 students demonstrated outside as MPs debated the Bill to introduce variable fees of up to £3,000.
The scale of the backbench revolt was smaller than at the Bill's second reading in January, when it scraped through by a margin of just five, with 72 Labour MPs voting against the Government.
