The information requested is not centrally held by the Home Office. The Home Office collects data on the number of knife offences recorded by the police forces in England and Wales, by police force area only. Data on these offences at the police force area level can be found in the Home Office Knife Crime Open Data Tables, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/police-recorded-crime-open-data-tables
