Q01/04: Who gagged the pollution report?

The Guardian ran a piece Anger at 'gag' on pollution report

The suppression of damaging statistics on large increases in greenhouse gas emissions from transport was condemned by MPs and environment groups yesterday, when they demanded the independence of the Office of National Statistics (ONS) should be safeguarded...
The Guardian yesterday revealed how the information was removed from the report after the intervention of the Department of Transport (DoT).
The report says "the DoT denied that ministers had been involved". Was it Sir Humphrey? Or a political advisor? Why did they do it?
