Labour MP David Winnock called Green a “billionaire spiv who should never have received a knighthood, a billionaire spiv who has shamed British capitalism”.
Chair of the work and pensions committee, Frank Field, who ran a joint inquiry into the collapse of the high street chain said the affair was a “Greek tragedy”.
He added: “There was nothing the committee could find that shows Sir Philip Green is the king of the high street. He [Green] was a very very successful asset stripper.”
He was awarded his title in 2006 for services to retail.
Green owned BHS for 15 years before selling it for £1 to Dominic Chappell. It subsequently went into administration in April of this year with a £571 million pension scheme deficit.
The last store closed its doors in August.
Green was derided for evidence of his extravagant spending, such as his £100million yacht, while the livelihoods of around 8,500 people who stood to lose their jobs hung in the balance.
There was little sympathy for Green on social media.
