Siebel Search with IP16 fails when searching with an ampersand character

Siebel Search fails when the value of a search field includes an ampersand character.
This is reproducible in vanilla Siebel 16.1.
Repro steps
- Using Siebel Search click Advanced Find
- Select a Find Category, e.g. Account
- Search for Account name which includes an ampersand, e.g. “Hastings & Rother NHS Trust”
- Search results are displayed however there is no query criteria applied, all records are returned (see screen shot)
- Looking at the log file, no bind variables is applied to the query.
