Part 36 and interest on future losses

A claimant beats his Part 36 offer and gets substantial damages for future losses.

Under CPR 36.14(3)(a) he's entitled to "interest on the whole or part of any sum of money (exlcuding interest) awarded at a rate not exceeding 10% above base rate for some or all of the period starting with the date on which the relevant period expired" (emphasis added).

Does any sum of money include future losses?

No, according to the Court of Appeal in Pankhurst v MIB [2010] EWCA Civ 1445.
