question comes up a great deal

Dear all,
this is from the story Lost in the Dark by John Langan.

I haven’t talked to every John Smith who was living in the city at that time, but I’m pretty confident whoever came for those corpses did so under a fairly blatant pseudonym. Why? the interviewer asks. The professor says, That question comes up a great deal, doesn’t it? If we’re going to answer it, then I think we need to start with the place where Agatha Merryweather was last seen.

I guess the words in question mean This is a very important question. Is this correct?
