Baker was appointed parliamentary under-secretary at the Department for Transport in 2010. In October 2013, he was appointed as minister of state for crime prevention in October 2013 at the Home Office. He resigned from this role on 3 November 2014.

- Shadow secretary of state for the environment and transport from 2002 to 2005.
- Shadow environment and rural affairs secretary from 2005 to 2006.
