Query about Section 5 - Tier 1 Extension Dependent

Hi friends,
got a query..
Now the form for Tier1 Dependent also has a section to give consent for UKBA to check with the bank.

Who should put the name and address in the
"Name and Address of applicant" ? of section 5?

Is it the main applicant or the dependent?
