Kindly do not say that it does not work.  Say what you started with,
what you actually got, and what you want that is different from that.
For example, you may be seeing the whitespaces yo have embedded in the
stylesheet, but we cannot tell.

Also, do you not want a "?" rather than a "&" between url and query?
You could use attribute value templates for a more readable syntax -

<a href='{$url}?{$Query}'>
