How to print last field ouput in Linux?

Hi All,

I am trying to print the dpkg -l command output each field using below script. But i am unable to print the entire data of the last column.
Can someone please help me in selecting the entire last column data.

Below is the Command output :

||/ Name                             Version               Architecture          Description
ii  accountsservice                  0.6.45-1ubuntu1       amd64                 query and manipulate user account information
ii  acl                              2.2.52-3build1        amd64                 Access control list utilities
ii  acpid                            1:2.0.28-1ubuntu1     amd64                 Advanced Configuration and Power Interface event daemon
ii  adduser                          3.116ubuntu1          all                   add and remove users and groups
ii  amd64-microcode                  3.20191021.1+really3. amd64                 Processor microcode firmware for AMD CPUs
ii  apparmor                         2.12-4ubuntu5.1       amd64                 user-space parser utility for AppArmor
ii  apport                           2.20.9-0ubuntu7.9     all                   automatically generate crash reports for debugging
ii  apport-symptoms                  0.20                  all                   symptom scripts for apport

Below is my script :

while IFS= read -r line;

NAME=$(echo "$line"|awk  '{print $2}')

Description=$(echo "$line"|awk  '{print $5}')

echo -e "{\"'name'\":\"'"$name"'\",\"'Description'\":\"'"$Description"'\"

done < filename

I am unable to print the entire data of description column.
Can someone please help me in getting the entire data ?
