No figures for this are collected. It should be noted that staff rostered for duty who choose not to take annual leave or exchange rest days are always required to report for work and are allocated alternative duties by local managers as appropriate, which may include training and development or manager briefings. I also refer you to my answer to MQ3320 / 2009.
