Inserting ampersand symbol to property value

How to insert & symbol in node property value via Merge statement? I am using Neo4j enterprise 3.1.4.

E.g
Merge(n:Person) set n.id=123, n.name = "Julia & Ratchel"

I tried this from the Neo4j Browser with Neo4j 3.3.5 and 4.0.2 and worked fine. I don't have anything older running.
Merge(n:Person) set n.id=123, n.name = "Julia & Ratchel"
Added 1 label, created 1 node, set 2 properties, completed after 92 ms.

Did you get an error in 3.1.4 and can you post it?
Are you considering upgrading to a more recent version? That one is several years old now.
