Query specific JIRA fields using PowerShell Invoke-RestMethod with &fields

I am successfully using PowerShell Invoke-RestMethod to run jql queries, but  when i add a fields list, &fields, or &startAt - the ampersand & does not seem to be getting parsed correctly


This works fine:

$Headers = @{ Authorization = $basicAuthValue }

$Body = @{ jql = "status=Closed" }
$Params = @{
Uri = ""
Method = "GET"
Headers = $Headers
Body = $Body
$response = Invoke-RestMethod @Params
$response | ConvertTo-Json


But if the jql contains a fields list:

$Body = @{ jql = "status=Closed&fields=project" }


The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.


If I capture the error:

{Field 'fields' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.}
