    Probably. We can't be sure without context.

    Given your (legalese) definition of matter, I am sure the usage is correct.

    See my amendments to your post above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    An example is: John's security clearance is too low for him to be involved in a matter of national security.
