Spool file xml query from Oracle

Greeting,

I use sqlplus to spool xml query but somewhere in the xml, the entries wrap to the second line like the following.

<DESCRIPTION>FORMERLY - xxxxxxxxxx &amp; LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OFFICE BUILDING</DES
CRIPTION>

Below is what I ran. How to fix it?

set linesize 9000;
set trimspool on;
set pages 0;
set feedback off;


spool C:\DATA.xml;
select dbms_xmlgen.getxml('MyQuery here') xml from dual;
spool off;
