Start the ssh daemon process from within a snap

We have encountered an erroneous situation where the ssh daemon is not running on some of our Ubuntu Core devices.

I can see from the ‘ps’ output that the sshd is not running (ps executed from within a snap running in strict confinement)

I would like to run a command (like /etc/init.d/ssh start) from within a snap but it seems I do nt have permission.

Is there an interface that could be connected to allow this?
