This prompted Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons, to concede that "because of the express will of the House" the government would back down and publish the legal advice in full.
The Commons supported a motion demanding full disclosure of the government's legal advice, by 311 votes to 293.
MPs had earlier rejected a government amendment to the motion, which Labour argued sought to kick the issue into the "long grass" until after the vote on the Brexit deal, by 311 votes to 307, majority four.
Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the finding of contempt was "a badge of shame" for the Government, with "huge constitutional and political significance".
The British House of Commons is scheduled to hold a debate on Tuesday afternoon on whether the United Kingdom government is in contempt of parliament for withholding its legal advice on Brexit.
But Tory Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg told the programme: "I would say publish and avoid being in contempt of the House of Commons, which is a very serious matter".
The vote has little direct impact on the Brexit debate, but reflects mounting tension between the government and Parliament over the next steps in the U.K.'s exit.
The ECJ's advocate general Manuel Campos Sanchez-Bordona said the United Kingdom could withdraw its notification to leave the European Union before its exit in March 2019 without needing the approval of the other 27 states.

Mrs May will say that to respect the 2016 referendum result would require "a Brexit that takes back control of our borders, laws and money" and "a Brexit that sets ourselves on course for a better future outside the European Union, as a globally trading nation, in charge of our own destiny and seizing the opportunities of trade with some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic economies across the world".
This ultimately would have helped stop the immediate publication of the full legal advice on the Brexit deal - something which opposition MPs have demanded.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said Tuesday that British consumers could see their weekly supermarket bills up by 10 percent in a worst-case Brexit scenario that involves a 25 percent fall in the value of the pound.
Crossbench MPs led by Grieve have tabled an amendment to the parliamentary motion which sets out how the government's Brexit deal will be debated over the coming days.
If she loses, May could call for a second vote on the deal.
MPs' decisions over the next week would "set the course our country takes for decades to come", she said.
With just seven days left to try to turn the overwhelming opposition for her Brexit deal around, the prime minister deployed her attorney general - an ardent Eurosceptic - to the dispatch box to try to sell her deal.
"We as 27 have a clear position on fair competition, on fish, and on the subject of the EU's regulatory autonomy, and that forms part of our position for the future relationship talks", said Macron.
