Mr Coveney also said there is too much talk of the "negative consequences" of a no-deal Brexit.
Barnier said the plan is incompatible with the EU's stance that equivalence decisions must be made unilaterally by Brussels and would amount to a "system of generalised equivalence that would in reality be jointly run by the European Union and UK".
Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab told MPs the government would take steps to ensure an "adequate food supply". The EU can not and will not delegate the application of its customs policy and rules, Value-Added Tax and duty collection to a non-member who would not be subject to the EU governance structures.
Raab only took up the role on 9 July, after his predecessor David Davis quit in protest at May's plan for close economic ties with the EU.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation stands by all allies: official says
Based on last year's data, the USA contributes more to the organisation than any other country, at 3.5 per cent of its GDP. They only have to defend that country if it actually gets attacked. "I understand what you're saying".
However, the extent to which the bill goes into detail on these policies, and the scope it will give lawmakers to actually change policy remain uncertain.
The government's "White Paper" on the future relationship published this month envisages the United Kingdom staying aligned to the EU's rules on goods but not services and mirroring much of the bloc's customs framework "as if in a combined customs territory".
"But the European Union also wants to keep control of its money, law, and borders".
Unveiling the plans in a white paper in the House of Commons, Mr Raab described it as "another key milestone in the UK's path to leaving the EU".
While UK proposals on security marked "a real step forward" and he welcomed the acknowledgement that the European Court of Justice was the only arbiter of EU law, he added: "In contrast, on our future economic relationship, it comes as no surprise that finding common ground between the EU27 and the UK is more hard".

Carolyn Coleman said she and her husband are planning to make a trip to IN for the funeral after the bodies are released. Cox Health Center Branson said Sunday night in a tweet that it was "happy to announce" all seven had been discharged.
"We've made really good progress this week", Mr Raab said.
"We can all see it's going to be an uphill task to persuade the EU-27", McGuinness said.
One of the key questions in the Brexit process is how much detail about the future relationship - including the crucial issue of financial services - will be pinned down before the United Kingdom leaves.
"What I am not going to do is allow us to cower in the corner, afraid of our own shadow, about the potential that that energy and that ambition and that principle and that pragmatism isn't reciprocated on the other side".
Raab said he believed a so-called "backstop" clause in the treaty on Ireland could be agreed, though he said Britain would insist it was not valid forever - something Barnier says it must be in case Britain's promised better proposals do not work.

He said despite poor treatment by their leaders, "the proud Iranian people are not staying silent about their government's many abuses", Pompeo said.
The minister also spoke out against a "no deal" Brexit warning that it would lead to a "brutal divorce" on the evening of March 29, 2019.
