Add your widths to the format string:
bond.write(' %10s%20s%30s%10s%25s\n' % (p1,p2,p3,p4,new) )
adjust the lengths to suit.
if you write the data in several places you can ensure consistency by
defining the format string as a variable:
fmt = ' %10s%20s%30s%10s%25s\n'
bond.write( fmt % (p1,p2,p3,p4,new) )
