Audit Commission chair Sir David Cooksey earned £19,000 in 1994-95 for the work he did in that role.
In answer to a written question from Labour's junior local government spokesman Keith Vaz, environment minister Robert Jones said Sir David was paid for working four days a month.
His deputy, Murray Stuart, was paid £13,034 for working the same number of days.
Sir David earned nearly £400 a day, compared with approximately £250 a day for other members of the commission.
Mr Jones also announced changes to the commission board. Four members - Mr Stuart, Sir Peter Bowness, Alan Brown and Anthony Christopher - stood down, while Helena Shovelton, Ron Watson and John Foster were appointed. Clive Thompson is the new deputy chairman.
